Dog Ears Bookstore to Host Author of Book on Boxer Jimmy Slattery

 

Rich Blake, author of “Slats: The Legend and Life of Jimmy Slattery,” will visit Dog Ears Bookstore & Café at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 4, for a book-signing event. The nonprofit community bookstore is located at 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo.

Jimmy Slattery was the personification of the Golden Era of sports in the boom/bust 1920s and ’30s. A phantom in the ring, “Slats” soared across the national stage like a comet, then crashed into oblivion. Discarded by the ages, this is the incredible true story of the Irish boy-wonder from Buffalo’s First Ward who captivated the boxing world at its peak.
