Much as I would love to be able to hit every big-league town this summer to promote Stars and Strikes, my forthcoming book on the 1976 season, time and funds will most likely limit me to reading events in LA (May 3 at the Allendale Public Library in Pasadena, May 15 at Joxer Daly's in Culver City, and May 17 at Skylight Books in Los Feliz), the Bay Area (Sausalito Public Library on May 8), Philly (June 23-24, locations TBA), NYC (June 26 at the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse and June 29 at Manitoba's Bar), Cooperstown (June 27), Boston (June 30-July 3, locations TBA), Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit (dates and locations for the latter three cities TBA as well, though I will be in the Windy City the first weekend in June for the Tribune Printers Row LitFest, and then be back in mid-August for a more extended and raucous Midwestern visit).
But if you're not in any of those places, you'd like to get yerself a signed and personalized copy (and can wait until mid-May to receive it), you can order one from L.A.'s wonderful Skylight Books. Just go to this link, scroll down to add the book to your cart, and mention in the comment section of the checkout page that you'd like your copy signed by the author; I will sign it for you during my May 17 event there, and the Skylight folks will wing it your way thereafter.
Thanks again for your support — and for supporting independent bookstores, as well. And if you ARE in any of my aforementioned destinations, I hooe to see you this summer!
