NEWTON — Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is getting a different kind of reception these days — as a children’s book author.
Edelman, who is out for the season with a knee injury, will perform a reading of his book, “Flying High,” on Tuesday at the Jewish Community Center in Newton.
Edelman will read from a special edition of the book, the Jewish Community Center said.
The appearance is part of PJ Library, a global Jewish children’s book program.
Edelman’s book tells the semi-autobiographical story of a football-playing squirrel named Jules.
Edelman’s father is Jewish, but his mother is not. Edelman reconnected with his Jewish heritage during a 2015 trip to Israel.
