Dick Belkin, who divides his time between Tucson and Coronado, California, recently published his second beach-inspired children’s book, “The Coronado Kid,” earning him recognition in the city’s Eagle Journal. Proceeds from the book and its precursor, “Coronado Dog Surfing Olympics,” go to the Coronado Historical Association. An earlier children’s book, “Totally Twisted! Tongue Twister Soup” is authored by “Captain Six,” his 1960s TV persona. Most recently, he and his wife, Sherri, were among the producers of the show “Come From Away” on Broadway. In Tucson, Belkin has chaired the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona, Tucson Hebrew Academy, Arizona Jewish Post, and the Tucson Jewish Community Center, and served on the board of the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona.
