The following is a press release about an upcoming event.
PASADENA, CA — Terry Sawchuk, one of the National Hockey League’s greatest goaltenders who was one of the original Los Angeles Kings, is the subject of a public reading by Randall Maggs, author of Night Work: The Sawchuk Poems, on March 17, 2009, starting at 7:00 PM PDT at Pasadena City College, in Pasadena, California.
The reading is free and open to the public.
“Night Work is a hockey saga, wrapping the game’s story in the intense, moody, and contradictory person of Terry Sawchuk,” said Dr. Brian Kennedy, Associate Professor of English, who also covers the Kings and Anaheim Ducks for Inside Hockey. “One of the game’s greatest goalies and most enigmatic figures, Sawchuk remains a fascinating figure for fans who are familiar with his career and his mysterious death at 41.”
“Those whose first question is ‘a book of poems’ will enjoy hearing Maggs explain how he came to write Night Work,” added Kennedy, author of the book Growing Up Hockey. “They’ll no doubt enjoy hearing him read what have been described as ‘compact, conversational poems which follow the tragic trajectory of the life and work of the dark, driven genius’ who was Sawchuk.”
For more information, Kennedy can be reached at the Pasadena City College English Department at (626) 585-7104 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
