30 for 30 Producer Jerry Barca to Talk Football History

​The New York Giants were an embarrassment in the late 1970s until a disparate group of characters came together to lead the team on an unlikely journey to the franchise’s first Super Bowl win. There’s Parcells, Simms and Taylor…and Donald Trump, Mark Bavaro and Phil McConkey, too.

On Sunday, Jan. 27 at 2:00 p.m. at the Scotch Plains Public Library, join author and 30 for 30 producer Jerry Barca for a fun afternoon of football history.

Barca, author of Big Blue Wrecking Crew: Smashmouth Football, A Little Bit of Crazy and the ’86 Super Bowl Champs, will talk about the strange and revealing elements that go into building a championship team.  He’ll also mix in stories of team building from his first book, Unbeatable: Notre Dame’s 1988 Championship and the Last Great College Football Season.

In addition to his critically acclaimed books, Barca has also produced films for the ESPN “30 for 30” series (“Catholics vs. Convicts” and “The Last Days of Knight”).  

Registration is required for this event. The library will contact registrants in the event of inclement weather.
