Author Dick Burdette to Hold Book Signing

Seventy-five years ago, the Waterloo Wonders came frolicking out of the hills of Lawrence County to become one of the most colorful, most exciting, most unforgettable team in the history of Ohio high school basketball. Over two season, 1933-34 and 1934-35, they won back-to-back state championships and in the process, perhaps as many as 100 games. The Wonders astonished overflow crowds in the state’s largest arenas with their whirlwind passing, deadeye shooting, lockdown defense and whimsical showmanship.

Author Dick Burdette will present a program and hold a book signing at the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library in Waverly on Saturday, February 14 at 11:00a.m. in the Community Meeting Room. Burdette is the author of The Waterloo Wonders: A Southern Ohio Legend, originally published in 1961. Now, on the 75th anniversary of their first championship season, Burdette has revised the book and expanded the account of their story.
