Author blogs about growing up in Hayward, with quiz

Kevin Nelson, who is appearing at the Hayward Area Historical Society museum to promote his new book, is a product of Hayward. After his parents moved here when he was 3 years old, he went to East Avenue Elementary School, Bret Harte Jr. High and Hayward High.

“I still have a lot of friends there, and I still blog about it,” said Nelson.¬†

That blog can be found here. Hayward-related entries include a tribute to a favorite high school teacher, tales stemming from his dishwashing days at Banchero’s, and the Bully of Bret Harte Jr. High.

There’s also a How Well Do You Know Hayward test, which is¬†incredibly tough. Take a look.
