Dave Kessler (1938 - )

Realtor, freelance writer, and country auctioneer, Mr. Kessler became interested in poetry as a kid since he grew up just a few miles from James Whitcomb Riley's home. His latest chapbook is Crapper Digest, which is available for purchase at 49 cents. The book has been called a ''great treasure trove of humor, doggerel, and vulgar verse.'' By Mr. Kessler. His poetry once caused an Old Order German Baptist to cancel his free subscription to a newsletter.
