About this title

Synopsis:

Most of us find comfort in reminiscing about “the good old days.” Thinking back to childhood stirs vibrant memories of family, friends, and historic events. Sometimes all it takes is an object such as a ticket stub or a baseball glove to awaken that sense of nostalgia.

In this powerful, meditative memoir, former sportswriter Tim Wesley brings his significant memories to life. He sorts through boxes storing the pieces of his past and delivers a mix of heartwarming and tragic tales from his personal and professional experiences.

Sports fanatics will find his stories about yesteryear’s superstars fascinating. What was Joe Namath like in person? How did Tim end up with one of Lyle Alzado’s gloves worn in Super Bowl XVIII?

The memoir also delves into moments that shaped Tim’s personal life—playing catch with his grandfather, almost shooting his father in a hunting accident, and helping to construct a medical clinic in Zimbabwe with his church.

Readers who peek inside My Boxes will find themselves laughing and crying at Tim’s evocative memories. Afterward, they will likely reflect upon their own literal and figurative boxes and the meaningful objects—and stories—they contain.

About the Author:

A Harrisburg, Pennsylvania native, Tim Wesley has been an award-winning, professional writer and communications executive for more than 30 years. After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, he covered the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Indiana (Pa.) Gazette. He then worked for the Beaver County Times. While there, he earned the nickname “The Wedge” for writing a controversial article about the Steelers, and his story about Art Schlichter garnered an Associated Press Sports Editors award. Later, he was business editor for the Times.

In the 1980s, Tim began working in corporate communications, eventually serving as vice president of investor relations for MotivePower Industries—now part of an industrial manufacturing company known as Wabtec. Institutional Investor magazine has named Tim a leading practitioner in his field.

Tim and his wife, Maria, have been married for twenty-seven years. They have three daughters—Amanda, Megan, and Hannah—and a grandson named Mason.
