We turned our attention to the Soap Box Derby. James Cassetta (History Librarian at the Pearl River Public Library) joined host Clare Sheridan to chronicle the derby's rollercoaster history—from its national origins to Pearl River’s thrilling ride; from its post–World War II arrival to a glorious rebirth and a second farewell in the 2000s.

Many of Mr. Cassetta's history presentations can be found at the Pearl River Library's Facebook Page.  His recent presentation about the Soap Box Derby can be viewed here:
