Join local author Astra Groskaufmanis for a Mother’s Day reading from Offside by a Mile, her frank and funny autobiography about being a hockey mom.
Moms are the MVPs — most valuable players — of most hockey families! This Mother’s Day weekend, join Astra Groskaufmanis as she reads from her autobiographical book Offside by a Mile: Confessions of a Hockey Mom. Families, especially hockey parents, will relate to the local author’s frank and funny anecdotes about the universal challenges, joys and sorrows that come with supporting your children’s passions. For Groskaufmanis, becoming a hockey mom meant getting used to early morning alarms, a minivan stuffed with hockey equipment, long hours in ice-cold arenas, lukewarm coffee and bad food.
Listen, learn and exchange stories of your own that reveal why the rewards outweigh the sacrifices of being a hockey parent.
