Bernie Federko: My Blue Note

Wed., Oct. 24, 7 p.m.

Bernie Federko is one of the greatest playmakers in NHL history, but his talents are mostly known only in St. Louis because he played at the same time as Wayne Gretzky. The kingpin of the St. Louis Blues from the mid-'70s to the late '80s, Federko racked up assists and made every one of his wingers better. In due time his number was retired by the team and he was elected to the NHL Hall of Fame. Now serving as part of the Blues' broadcast team, Federko has at last written the book that sheds light on how a kid from tiny Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, rose through the amateur and regional ranks to reach the Hall of Fame. Federko discusses and signs copies of My Blues Note at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 24, at the Ethical Society of St. Louis (9001 Clayton Road, Ladue; www.left-bank.com). He's joined by his co-author, sportswriter Jeremy Rutherford. Admission for one person is $30 and includes a hardcover book. The $35 ticket is good for two people and one book. Please note that Federko will not sign any memorabilia, but he will pose for photos. $30 for one person + one copy of book/$35 for two people + one book

Some who lived that history have evidently remained. Patrick Dorsey reads from his book, Haunted Webster.
