big chuck faceHi everybody.  I am “Big Chuck” D’Imperio one of the “Festival Fanatics.”  I just wanted to put a bug in your ear to remind you that Christmas is coming and I have some of the most unique gift items for that special “New Yorker”  on your gift list.  I am a longtime writer of Upstate New York books which you can see along the right margin of this page.

My books have spread the word far and wide about the wonders of upstate, the history and the people, to readers all across the country.  I love Upstate!  If you know someone who lives far from home now but was raised in upstate, these books are a perfect way to send a little of “home” to them for the holidays.

Just click on each book cover for ordering information or feel free to email me at for more information!  Happy Holidays!

About "Big Chuck"

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York! I have written several books about the region, do a lot of public speaking around the state, am an award-winning radio broadcaster (since 1989), write a bi-monthly newspaper column and give walking tours of Cooperstown, N.Y. Yes, I do keep busy! I hope we can share some Upstate stories on this blog! If you would like to take a look at my series of Upstate New York books visit
