NFL star Julian Edelman to read from his new children's book

NEWTON, Mass. (AP) NFL star Julian Edelman is getting a different kind of reception these days – as a children’s book author.

The New England Patriots wide receiver is out for the season with an injury and is scheduled to perform a special reading of his new book, “Flying High,” at the Jewish Community Center in Newton, Massachusetts.

The center says Edelman will read on Tuesday from a special edition of the book, which originally was released last year.
