Boston College alumna Leslie Bilodeau Placzek has written a book titled The Audacious Adventures of Zazoo Plazz: Part-Time Superhero, Full-Time Mom, a humorous collection of vignettes that capture the quirky imagination of her alter ego, Zazoo Plazz. The stories follow Zazoo from her childhood in Connecticut to her mid-life as a wife, mother, and career woman. Placzek says she hopes her stories honor the superhero in all women. In an interview with the Journal Inquirer in Connecticut, Placzek said her book is timely given the pandemic. “Both humor and nostalgia play an important role during tough times, strengthening our immune system, and reminding us we came through trying times before, with the help of our communities and loved ones.” You can follow Placzek on Facebook.
