The theme of the evening is sports and how following your dreams requires patience and perseverance. About the authors:
Bill Mitaritonna ‘90 is the author of Last of the Redmen, which chronicles his relationship with his father, Angelo, and his love for and career in basketball. Once the manager for Coach Jack Curran, Bill went on to play ball at Westbrook College. In his senior year, Bill transferred to St. John’s University, where he walked-on in the Big East during the ‘93-‘94 season. “This memoir is a labor of love to pay tribute to my father, who never let me quit and helped me achieve my goal,” said Billy. | Last of the Redmen Product Page | News Coverage
Richard O’Malley ’93 is the author of One Lucky Fan, the story of his own successful lifelong quest to see at least one home game of all 123 teams in the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. “It’s been a labor of love for 25 years, and I undertook a massive 41-games-in-53-days trip in fall 2017 to complete my mission,” said Rich. “That travel narrative is a huge part of the story. The book also talks about my foundations as a fan and relates the teams I root for to different facets of that. Rooting for the Yankees and Jets means two very different outlooks on life!” Click the following link to learn more about Rich’s book. | One Lucky Fan Product Page
