Tony Walter (Rick Beverstein)
New book "The Packers, My Dad, and Me: A Family Legacy that Fed a National Obsession"

The Green Bay Packers are part of Tony Walter's DNA.

Walter is a former Green Bay Press-Gazette sports editor whose father, John, was a Press-Gazette Packers reporter and sports editor. His family includes Hagemeisters, Minahans and Torinuses, all notable actors in the Packers story, which gives him a unique perspective. 

In his new book, "The Packers, My Dad, and Me: A Family Legacy That Fed a National Obsession," he shares that perspective, aided immeasurably by his father's diaries.

Walter will talk about his new book, his previous book, "Baptism by Football," and other interesting local history.
