Iceman John Scully, the author and former light heavyweight contender now training boxers at the Lions Den in Middletown, will be the guest speaker for a communications class at Gateway Community College in New Haven on Thursday, April 21.
Scully will cap a fierce 1-2 punch that day opened by Norm Pattis, the trial lawyer and author of a book due out later this spring.
Pattis opens the show -- open to the public -- at 9:30 a.m. in Room 201. Scully appears at 11 a.m. in Room 234. For more information, contact Prof. Franz Douskey, (203) 285-2206, firstname.lastname@example.org
Pattis, a columnist for American Lawyer Media, will read from his forthcoming book of essays, TAKING BACK THE COURTS, SUTTON HART PRESS, due out this spring.
My take on this book:
'Pattis demystifies the courts and disrobes the judges who gutted the Bill of Rights. Careful readers are given a map to right some of the wrongs committed in our name.'
Scully, who recently embarked on a career as a motivational speaker, also works as a commentator for venues including ESPN and Showtime. He will be a guest of Professor Susan Chenard.
Scully will speak for about 45 minutes including questions and anwsers. Scully, a prolific writer, has posted excerpts of his manuscript The Iceman Diaries at http://www.icemanjohnscully.com/

The Princeton Review has the message right; community colleges produce leaders!
