Hey, everyone!  Looking forward to another Tuesday night discussing books, sharing insider secrets, and learning more about the authors behind our favorite stories. 

Tonight we have Howard Shapiro, hockey lover, author, and newest sensation!  Here is just a little bit about this guy!  :)

HOWARD SHAPIRO  has written four children’s books and The Stereotypical Freaks will be his debut Graphic Novel. 

His 2008 book, Hockey Player for Life, has been the #1 downloaded children’s hockey e-book on Amazon’s Kindle chart since its arrival as an e-book in November of 2011.  His, Hockey Days book was the only book featured in the December 2007 Sporting News Annual Gift Guide as a Best Buy Gift for Children. 

Through a corporate sponsorship program he set up (and maintains), since the 2010-11 season, both of his children’s hockey books have been given to NHL teams (over 2,500 copies to date) for use in their community and educational initiatives. 

Since 2006 his annual charity raffle, which he matches dollar for dollar donated, has raised funds for several hockey-related charities including the Mario Lemieux Foundation, Hockey Fights Cancer and the Keith and Lisa Primeau Scholarship Fund.  For more information, please log on to howardshapiro(dot)net
