Batters Up!

Sunday February 19, 2012

With the lack of snow here in Maine (our lawn is almost completely bare!) and with news that the Boston Red Sox are heading off to their Florida training camp, I’m already thinking spring. I know this is dangerously premature, as April blizzards are not uncommon in these parts, but I’m willing to take the risk. So this Saturday, February 25th at 10:30, at Kennebooks in Kennebunkport, Maine I’ll be celebrating baseball with my friend, Matt Tavares in the first of a series of joint book signings that will take place over the next few months (for a complete list of signings, click on “Spring Signing Schedule” just over there > in the right hand column).

Matt is the wonderful author/illustrator of the newly released There Goes Ted Williams: The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived. It’s a beautiful book that was published by Candlewick Press who also published my new baseball book, Randy Riley’s Really Big Hit. Matt had the idea that since both of our books were released on the same day, by the same publisher and have a baseball theme, it might be fun to do some signings together this spring.

So PLAY BALL and BATTER UP! Hope you can join us this Saturday.
