Book Signing by Parsippany Author Hank Gola

PARSIPPANY — Award-Winning Sports Journalist & Author, Hank Gola, will be signing copies of his newly-released and highly acclaimed book, City of Champions, the story of Garfield High School’s 1939 national championship football team. The signing will take place on Saturday, January 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Book Barn, 18 Pocono Road, Denville. The Book Barn will offer three books free with the purchase of one of his books.

Hank Gola has spent over four decades as a journalist, primarily covering professional football and golf for the New York Daily News and New York Post after starting his career at The Herald-News of Passaic, and the Daily Record, where he covered the Cosmos of the North American Soccer League and the New York Giants of the National Football League.

In City of Champions, Hank Gola, a veteran and award-winning football writer, unveils a long-forgotten game through research spanning newspaper accounts, over 75 personal interviews, letters, oral histories, game films, recordings and photos.

Gola mines stories of the towns and the lives of the players and coaches–detailing the grit (and wild strokes of luck and fortune) that led up the Christmas night game. In a larger context, these two teams and the landmark 1939 season mirror interwar America, offering new perspectives on some of the pressing cultural, economic and socio-political issues of the era. Above all, City of Champions is a story of everyday heroes and lives well-lived.
