Patriots receiver Julian Edelman will read from his latest children’s book at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center’s Christmas in the City tree and wreath auction Thursday. Edelman’s new book, “Flying High 2,” is the story of a squirrel and teammates competing in the Super Bowl. “I recently became a father and am grateful to be part of bringing joy to boys and girls during a time when their family may not be able to do it all on their own,” Edelman said. “We can all use a little help at times and Christmas in the City offers that to families struggling with homelessness and other issues.”
