The event, which is open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. at the Laurel Theater. A $2 donation is requested at the door.
In “Ice n Go,” Moshak reflects on the role of sports in society and addresses the high stakes and costs of winning in sports today.

Her book offers strategies for improving the athletic experience, especially for youth.
