New Book Released

I am very pleased to announce today the release of my newest book, Sports Memories of Western Pennsylvania (Arcadia Publishing).



My co-author for this book is Pittsburgh sportscaster, Alby Oxenreiter. This book has been 1-1/2 years in the making and a true labor of love. I dedicated this book to the memory of my father, John Alzo, who was a standout on the Duquesne High School Basketball team in 1942-43 and locally famous semi-professional basketball player in Pittsburgh in the 1940s and 1950s.

It was an honor to work with Alby Oxenreiter on this book. We will be appearing together at our first book signing at the Waterfront Barnes & Noble, Homestead, PA on Wednesday, September 19th at 7:00 p.m. for the Mifflin Township Historical Society's "What's Your History Night." If you live in or around Pittsburgh, we hope you'll be able to join us for our discussion and signing that evening.

The publication of this book is bittersweet--finally a book my father would want to read and unfortunately he is not here to do so. But, I hope that he is looking down and smiling!



This one's for you, Dad!
