From Brooklyn to the Olympics: The Hall of Fame Career of Auburn University Track Coach Mel Rosen by Craig DarchProfessor Craig Darch got a chance to show off his lively prose style when he was asked to be a Visiting Scribe by the Jewish Book Council. The author of From Brooklyn to the Olympics: The Hall of Fame Career of Auburn University Track Coach Mel Rosen, was featured on the blog The Prosen People the week of September 15-19. Mr. Darch wrote two blog posts pertaining to his authorship of the Rosen biography.

In the first post, “How I Got Interested in Writing the Mel Rosen Biography,” the author reflects on his childhood in South Bend, Indiana, growing up in a family of sports fans who loved discussing the achievements of Jewish athletes. He describes a chance encounter with Coach Rosen that led to his decision to write the book.

The next post, “My Parents’ Legacy, My Library, and the Mel Rosen Biography,” describes Darch’s extensive personal library of Jewish books, including titles on Jews and sports that were helpful to him in the writing of From Brooklyn to the Olympics.

Darch’s family history combining love of good sports tales and of the printed word coalesced into the inspiring biography of Mel Rosen he was destined to author.

From Brooklyn to the Olympics is available in hardcover and ebook from NewSouth Books, Amazon, or your favorite bookstore.
