Why should you attend?

“Tony takes you on a journey shares his life testimony. If you are an athlete that feels you are untouchable and that your sporting career will always be there, READ THIS BOOK. What will you do when you can’t play anymore? What will you do when those professional dollars aren’t available anymore? What is your back up plan?”—The Ball Hawk

“A powerful, captivating account of a husband and wife who crossed the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans together in a rowboat they built themselves. The writing is beautiful, and Kathleen Saville’s perspective is clear-eyed, honest, and poignant. This is a wonderful book.” —Reeve Lindbergh, bestselling author of Under a Wing and No More Words

“For as long as I have followed his work, Tim Wendel has always chosen a distinct path of intimate stories within big topics, those subjects revealed by his superb way of getting at the particular. This riveting book is no different. Bravo!” —Ken Burns
