About: Last year upon its release, Paul Fiarkoski's memoir Romancing the Blatt captivated readers in Omaha and beyond. While many were fortunate enough to acquire signed copies at meet-and-greet events, the full story hasn't been shared. But now, Paul will entertain fans of the book, new and established, with pictures, stories and more as he tells the story of this book.

When Paul Fiarkoski returned to his South Omaha stomping grounds in 2007, he couldn't believe his eyes. "Save Rosenblatt" signs were displayed in the yards of homes in the neighborhood surrounding Rosenblatt Stadium as if it were an election year. He did a little research and came to grips with the likelihood that the home of NCAA College World Series since 1950 would be demolished and replaced with a new stadium in downtown Omaha. In Romancing The Blatt, you'll get a taste of what it was like living in the Rosenblatt Stadium neighborhood and how the stadium was literally woven into the fabric of South Omaha. It was so much more than a baseball stadium to the people of this community. Fiarkoski shares his personal experiences at concerts, baseball games and even the sledding hill on the north side of the stadium. In vivid detail, he takes you with him on a journey that resulted in a deep love for Omaha's field of dreams.
