Wait Till Next Year
by Doris Kearns Goodwin
The Pulitzer Prize winner’s memoir of growing up on Long Island in the 1950s, and her devotion to the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Reviewers called this a “must-read” for baseball fans, and it certainly is a must-read as well for anyone who grew up on Long Island. The book recalls a time when baseball truly was the national past time, and everyone in the neighborhood knew everyone else.

Why Wait Till Next Year?

* The story takes place on Long Island.

* In addition, to being a well-known author and speaker, Doris Kearns Goodwin gained recognition among baseball lovers through her commentary in Ken Burns’ documentary Baseball.

* The subject matter has appeal for both men and women, and would be a good choice for high school reading lists.

* It is available in hardcover, paperback, large type, audio and downloadable audio formats.

* The baseball theme works well since our big author event will be held in April.

Stay tuned for more information!
