What would a Fort Wayne Sports Hall of Fame look like? Sebring will answer that question and look at other facets of Fort Wayne Sports from the perspective of a sports reporter and city native who has covered the Komets for 23 seasons. Sebring has written a book about the city’s sports history, one of seven works he has published in his career. He will autograph copies of his latest book, which is for sale in the History Center’s gift shop.
On January 25, Winterval in downtown Fort Wayne, Randy Harter will be at the History Center at 2 p.m. to share his Fort Wayne postcard collection and autograph copies of his book “Postcard History Series: Fort Wayne (IN)”. Harter’s work is also available in the History Center gift shop.
