Steve Bassett
Steve Bassett was born and raised in Newark’s crime-ridden Third Ward and, although far removed during a career as an award-winning journalist, he has always been proud of the sobriquet Jersey Guy. He has been legally blind for almost a decade, but hasn’t let this slow him down.

As our Author of the Day, Bassett tells us all about his latest book, Father Divine's Bikes.
