NOTE: Due to last minute work conflicts, Mr. Carlson will not be able to join us for the Festival this year.
Newspaper reporter and editor Chuck Carlson has written extensively about the Green Bay Packers, and his latest book on the subject, Tales from the Green Bay Packers Sideline: a Collection of the Greatest Packers Stories Ever Told (2011), contains stories about the team history and the legendary men, both on and off the field, who have made the Packers great. This work has stories ranging from Vince Lombardi's objections to rededicating the Packers' stadium as Lambeau Field to how Aaron Rogers dealt with the pressure of Super Bowl XLV. Throughout the book, Carlson's well-researched and clear writing convey the spirit of determination at the heart of the team.
Carlson's other books include: Green Bay Packers: Yesterday & Today (2009), Game of My Life: Green Bay Packers (2007), Titletown Again (1997), The Green Bay Packers Pocket Primer (1997), and Mulligans 4 All: 101 Excuses, Alibis and Observations on the Game of Golf (1998).
