24th & Glory book signing

The "24th & Glory" book is out now.

The public is invited to meet the author of The World-Herald’s latest book "24th & Glory."

We've already hosted several events surrounding the series on North Omaha and a generation of world-class athletes. Those were such a hit that we have a couple more scheduled for the rest of August.

“24th and Glory,” a book and newspaper series by World-Herald writer Dirk Chatelain, chronicles the rise of North Omaha and the generation of athletes it spawned in the 1950s and ’60s, including greats like Bob Boozer, Bob Gibson, Gale Sayers, Roger Sayers, Johnny Rodgers, Ron Boone and Marlin Briscoe.
