As a young man, Peter was involved with a gang. One day, he came to Parkway Central Library’s Music Department and found a recording of West Side Story. He checked it out on a whim, forever changing his life. After falling in love with the musical, Peter spent much more time in the Library—to the point that he was kicked out of his gang. He went on to serve in the Marines for over 20 years.
