Matt Robinson: Legends and lore of the Ivy League


After over 20 years as a professional writer, editor, publisher and “pen for hire,” I have composed my new book Lions, Tigers, and…Bulldogs?: An unofficial guide to the legends and lore of the Ivy League. It was just published by Fighting Quaker Books. However, you can go to to order the book or respond to weekly trivia contests for a chance to WIN a copy.

In addition to tons of trivia about the Ancient Eight, the book and Web site offers interesting information about the history of academia and college sports in America, as well as a veritable Who’s Who of famous graduates (and almost graduates). So if your students or children need a bit of a boost to get them thinking about and striving for college, Lions, Tigers, and…Bulldogs? can be a fun way to start the conversation.

A book party is scheduled for Sept. 14 at the New England Mobile Book Fair in Newton, Mass.
