POSNANSKI ON PATERNO

Joe Posnanski, author of Paterno, the biography of the longtime, much admired Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, will be in conversation with Rainy Day Books' Vivian Jennings, at 7 pm on Wednesday, September 12.

Talk about unfortunate timing -- Posnanski was nearly finished with the book when Paterno's assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, was charged, and then convicted of serial child molestation involving football players. Sandusky will likely spend the rest of his life in prison; Paterno died a few weeks after the scandal broke, his sterling reputation badly besmirched.

Rainy Day Books will host the event at Unity Temple on the Plaza, 707 W. 47th Street, Kansas City, MO. Information on the admission packet at www.rainydaybooks.com, or at (913) 384-3126. http://joeposnancki.com
