I'm Going to Cooperstown! On Firecracker Day!
The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has invited me to give a presentation on Tinker to Evers to Chance as part of its 2018 Author Series.
My program will be held on Wednesday, July 4, at 1 p.m., in the Museum's Bullpen Theater. It's open to the public with Museum admission, so plan your visit to Cooperstown now!
Bruce Markusen, manager of Digital and Outreach Learning, extended the invitation. The Hall of Fame hosts about a dozen Authors Series events during the baseball season, bringing baseball authors to Cooperstown for special lectures and book signings.
Speakers at last year's Authors Series included former Yankees public relations director and best-selling author Marty Appel (Casey Stengel: Baseball's Greatest Character), baseball books maven Ron Kaplan (Hank Greenberg in 1938), and former big leaguers Bernie Carbo (Saving Bernie Carbo) and John D’Acquisto (Fastball John).
Authors discuss their work and take questions from the audience in the theater program, then sign copies of their books for fans in the Library Atrium. Seating in the Bullpen Theater is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hope you can join me!
