Menickelli’s disc golf guide published, available

“The Definitive Guide to Disc Golf,” a book WCU’s Justin Menickelli co-wrote with Ryan Pickens, has been published by Triumph Books and is now available on the publisher’s site and Amazon.com.

MenickelliBookCover“We were really excited to sign with the Chicago-based publisher considered the leader in sports publishing,” said Menickelli, an associate professor of health and physical education. “The book will be available in bookstores everywhere in late March. It’s doing well on Amazon; more pre-orders there than we anticipated. There is significant interest in translating the book into Swedish and Finnish.”

Menickelli anticipated in an interview last summer that he would be busy this spring, promoting the book at different disc golf events. “The response from the Professional Disc Golf Association has been tremendous,” he said. “The publisher is arranging several book signings and events in bookstores from Sylva to Santa Cruz. There will be one at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, May 7.”

“I’m glad to be part of something that encourages exercise and good health – that’s what we do in health and physical education,” Menickelli said.
