“Tales of Brooklyn” Book Launch

December 4 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Every hero must have an origin story, and that includes New York media icon Stan Fischler. Known by millions of sports fans as “The Maven,” Fischler has written over 100 books on hockey, baseball, and transit systems—now he turns to his own story.

Fischler has written for national publications, met celebrities, and co-produced an award-winning documentary. But before all this, he was just a simple New York kid speeding around on his Roadmaster, riding the Coney Island Cyclone, and watching a double feature at the Kismet every Saturday.

“Tales of Brooklyn” is a collection of humorous and poignant stories that gives a fascinating glimpse of growing up in New York City during the Depression and WWII eras. Fischler’s intimate circle of family and friends will shape him into the Hall of Fame hockey writer that he becomes. Loaded with nostalgic scenes of joy and sorrow, this origin story presents us with the moments that made “The Maven.”

This is an in-person reading event with the author, books will be available for purchase. Please register on Eventbrite to attend.

Proof of vaccination is required, please note that the venue is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
