Angie Abdou Celebratory Book Launch
Join Angie Abdou on Tuesday, Sept 4 at 7:30 pm at Fernie’s Polar Peek Books for a celebratory launch of her latest book, Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom.
In her latest book, Abdou combines revealing personal stories with careful research on issues such as cost, gender bias, concussions, and family pressures to offer a thoughtful look at the struggles, joys, and strains of having a child in amateur hockey. Praised by Booklist in a starred review as “a first-rate memoir” and “a must-read for parents with youngsters who play organized sports,” Home Ice offers a compellingly honest insider’s view of what it is like to parent today’s young athlete in a competitive, high-pressure culture.
