    Author Talk and Book Signing: Frank Meeink

    As part of the Boca Raton Public Library's 2017 initiative of Cultural Connections, the library will host an author talk and book signing by Frank Meeink, author of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead. Meeink's raw telling of his descent into America’s Nazi underground and his ultimate triumph over hatred and addiction has the power to open hearts and change lives.

    Frank’s violent childhood in South Philadelphia primed him to hate and made him easy prey for skinhead gang recruiters. By age seventeen, Frank was hosting a cable access show called “The Reich” to recruit more people into the neo-Nazi movement. By eighteen, he was doing hard time in an Illinois prison. Behind bars, Frank began to question his hatred, thanks in large part to his African-American teammates on a prison football league. Shortly after being paroled, Frank defected from the white supremacy movement. Now a noted speaker, author and founder of Harmony Through Hockey, Frank's life stands for tolerance, diversity and mutual understanding in regards to race, politics and all aspects of society. Frank is truly an inspiration in this time of strife and conflict.
