RICHIE HALL LAUNCHES BOOK "SMOKE AND MIRRORS: LIFE IN THE CFL"
Smoke and Mirrors is Hall’s eclectic mix of storytelling in the form of biography, stories from a 30-year friendship with the author, sports psychology, and loads of stories from his life in football and life. The book is a unique glimpse into a warrior-poet and humanitarian; a man who is described as a ‘master teacher or maestro’ by CFL Hall of Famer Eddie Davis. Smoke and Mirrors is a fun look at the inner workings of the CFL, and the fascinating sport that pulls in life-long passionate fans.
The book will be available through all the major websites and bookstores such as Amazon, Chapters/Indigo, Google, Barnes and Noble, and many Indy outlets including a number of CFL team stores. The book sells for approximately $25 including taxes.
“From his time as a Grey Cup winning player to his emergence as a championship coach, Richie Hall has been a CFL fixture: Beloved, respected, he has earned his stature by making his life and life’s work about guiding others, helping them become better people and better players. This book is a splendid telling of Hall’s spiritual journey.”
Glen Suitor, TSN analyst and former Saskatchewan Roughrider
