Asbury Park Press sports columnist shares stories
Speaker Series summer event 7:15, August 22 at the Board of Ed building, 163 Monmouth Rd., Oakhurst
They say every picture tells a story. And some tell more than one. In recent years, Asbury Park Press sports columnist Steve Edelson has scoured the newspaper’s photo archives, pulling out images for a series of historical retrospectives chronicling sports at the Jersey Shore. And along the way, not only have the archival photographs breathed life into the words, some have taken on a life of their own, telling both a story—and ultimately, a backstory.
He has shaped his retrospectives into a talk, illustrated with photos of legendary Jersey Shore games and athletes that played them. His research, coupled with his years of experience writing about the regional sports scene, yield fascinating insights.
Steve as agreed to present his talk as part of our Speaker Series. Join us 7:15, Wednesday, August 22 at the Board of Education Building, 163 Monmouth Rd., Oakhurst. Explore the history of the archival images and see for yourself how freezing a moment in time can tell way more than a thousand words.
The speaker event is open to the public, free of charge. Donations are appreciated. Refreshments are served. (We collect and welcome nonperishable items for the Fulfill food bank.)
