LA CAR'S BRIAN KENNEDY AT PASADENA VROMAN'S

Kennedy Gives a Reading From His Latest Book

LA Car

We know him as LA Car Editor-at-Large Brian Kennedy, writer of reviews on autos, autobooks and motorsports. But for Brian, that "at large" title extends beyond the world of automotive journalism. Brian Kennedy is known throughout the North American hockey community as a writer and reporter of that sport. Following up his first book, the bestselling Growing Up Hockey, Brian Kennedy is back with more hockey stories. This time, he collects the stories of NHL stars and hockey journalists as they "grew up hockey." Great for hockey fans and newcomers alike, his collection of stories may introduce you to something you never knew about your favorite star. But as AMHL.com color commentator Jim Dwyer says, "the beguiling beauty in Brian Kennedy's 'Living the Hockey Dream' is the diversity of stories. Amidst the unique insights into the Gretzkys and Granatos and Hulls and Howes, Kennedy presents profiles of unheralded hockey people such as an animated arbiter, meandering minor leaguers, and a hoarder of hockey sweaters. Whether his subjects are male or female, professional or amateur, North American or European, Kennedy demonstrates a rare flair for encapsulating the abundant joys of hockey." On January 18th, Brian was at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena to talk about his new book, read passages, and chew the fat. It was a night to remember for hockey fans and LA Car readers alike. - Roy Nakano
