About the book
Clint and Corbin are having a weird day. Best friends for life, things are getting a little strange around their town, and at school. When they’re followed by a strange man looking for Clint and later attacked by an imp, it makes sense to retreat to the safety of home. But when strangers from another world, Banks and O’Neil, arrive with their medley of allies, things get even weirder. Why are they here? What do they want? And what is The Requiem that everyone keeps talking about? As Clint and his friends and family are drawn deeper into a thrilling adventure, only one thing is for sure. They may not be getting out alive. And class with Mrs Christenson will seem like a walk in the park after this.

For more than a half-century, a group of Dallas friends assembled to play touch football each Thanksgiving Day morning on the front lawn of their old elementary school in White Rock. As the men aged, their determination and love of the game stayed strong. After the final game in 2009, Dallas reporter John Anders noted:
“They arrived on walkers and in iron lungs…Grandchildren would drop them off andperhaps stay behind to serve as stretcher-bearers following the conflict.”
Now, six decades later, team captains Brent Parrott and Bryan Renfro are sharing this beautiful story of friendship and Texas football in the new book,The Reilly Thanksgiving Invitational Story, which releases this month.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In 1960, on the front lawn of Martha Turner Reilly Elementary, a tradition was born. A group of seventh-grade boys captured the free time before Thanksgiving dinner to engage in a game of touch football. It was a good day to play. So good, in fact, that the game would resume each year at the same time in the same place. Through the ebb and flow of lives, loves, and responsibilities, the Reilly Thanksgiving Invitational continued for five decades. The Reilly Thanksgiving Invitational Story offers a first-hand glimpse into an era long past and captures the essence of tradition, friendship, life lessons, history, culture, the ups and downs, happiness, and sadness for those lost,over decades.
Today, Alzheimer’s has touched most of the 22 members and a portion of the book proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer’s research. The book releases November 2019
This coming-of-age book is a must-read for anyone with nostalgic heartstrings. One of the most beautiful things about this book is that it is interactive. Though it is available in hard copy, the book is best consumed digitally because the story is supplemented with artifacts and details (videos, links, newspaper clippings, and photos) that preserve an era in American history long past. The Reilly Thanksgiving Invitational Story is a readable account of the personal and cultural experiences of a group of friends that tells a story about all of us.
“(This Book) captures the era of growing up in the 50s and 60s with sensitivity and
humor.”- Neilia West (Reviewer)
