August? Stanley Cup fever?
No, I’m not a bookish sort that has no idea about sports (well, actually I am, but that’s not what’s going on here) – I’m talking about the Stanley Cup Celebration that is happening on Friday in Cole Harbour.
If you can’t make it to Cole Harbour – or if like me, you need to brush up on your hockey and Stanley Cup lore — you might want to check out these titles:
Legendary Stanley Cup Stories by Brian McFarlane
Travels with Stanley by The Keepers of the Cup
Lord Stanley: the Man Behind the Cup by Kevin Shea
There are also a couple of recent biographies of Sidney Crosby you might be interested in:
Sidney Crosby: A Hockey Story by Paul Arseneault with Paul Hollingsworth
The Kid : a season with Sidney Crosby and the new NHL by Shawna Richer
Or you might want to check out biographies of other Canadian hockey players, of which the library has many.
