Virtual – Simcoe Author Talk Series: Bernie Saunders (NHL Hockey Player)

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual

Bernie Saunders always had a passion for hockey. His prodigious talent was on display at all levels for everyone to see. But because he was Black, he was stymied at every turn and experienced nothing but taunting from opponents, spectators, coaches and even his own teammates. Shut Out is a memoir about professional hockey by a player who had the potential to become a star but was blocked at almost every opportunity because of his race. Despite this, Shut Out is a hopeful and uplifting book about facing adversity, overcoming it and moving ahead.
