Local Author Celebration Series: John Dechant

March 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Get to know local authors in an intimate environment as they share their inspirations and writing processes with us! In March, we’re thrilled to welcome John Dechant, partner at Legacy Preservation and longtime Joslyn Castle supporter.

About John:
John Dechant is the author of Little Poison: Paul Runyan, Sam Snead, and a Long-Shot Upset at the 1938 PGA Championship. He has played golf since childhood but only recently began writing about it.

In 2016 Dechant wrote Scoreless: Omaha Central, Creighton Prep, and Nebraska’s Greatest High School Football Game, published by the University of Nebraska Press. The book was named one of “12 Really Good New Sports Books” by the Christian Science Monitor. After the publication of Scoreless, MaxPreps named the 1960 game the book was based on the greatest tie game in high school football history. In 2017, Dechant wrote The Fraternalist, a biography of his grandfather, Virgil C. Dechant.
