Author Afternoon with Casey Sherman
Author Presentation with Casey Sherman at White Birch Books
Friday, September 22 at 5 p.m.
Join us at the bookstore for an early evening presentation and book signing with Fryeburg Academy Graduate, Author Casey Sherman, who will be discussing his newest book, THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE: Pete Frates and the Fight against ALS and signing copies. Make an evening of it and head out to dinner at one of the The Valley Originals restaurants after the presentation!
While everyone knows of the Ice Bucket Challenge, the viral craze that swept the nation in summer 2014, too few know the truly inspirational story behind it. Pete Frates was a man at war with his own body. A man whose love for others was unshakable. A man who refused to fight alone, and in so doing mobilized a global army to combat one of the most devastating diseases on earth: ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. When disease crippled Frates, the former Boston College baseball star turned tragedy into inspiration. Pete’s story is a testament to the power of love, the steadfastness of family, the generosity of strangers, and the compassion of crowds.
Casey Sherman is a New York Times Bestselling Author of ten books including The Finest Hours (now a major motion picture starring Casey Affleck & Chris Pine) and Boston Strong (the basis for the new film Patriots Day starring Mark Wahlberg).
Half of the authors’ proceeds will go to the Frates family.
