Patoski reads from Dallas Cowboys book tonight at Front Street
ALPINE – Texas author Joe Nick Patoski will read from his impressive new book on the Dallas Cowboys this evening from 6-7:30pm at Front Street Books’ Reading Room, 201 East Holland Avenue in Alpine.
Entitled “The Dallas Cowboys: The Outrageous History of the Biggest, Loudest, Most Hated, Best Loved Football Team in America,” the book will appeal to die-hard fans of the Cowboys as well as to students of Dallas-area history and Texas bombast.
Publishers Weekly lauds the book as an “in-depth study [that] gives readers everything they want to know about ‘The Boys’ and much more. . . From the front office, to the media, to the famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Patoski also tracks the parallel development of the city of Dallas, with a focus on business and politics.”
In an in-depth review in the Dallas Morning News, sports journalist Allan Barra sums up the book: “The Dallas Cowboys stands as the definitive biography of a city and a football team.”
Front Street’s Jean Hardy Pittman promises Joe Nick will not read all 800 pages of the tome, “but he will entertain with some of the best stories from it.”
The public is invited and refreshments will be served. Donations of food and wine are happily accepted, says Pittman.
For more information, call the store at 837-3360.
