In the greatest double header of the season, Mark Kingwell and Stacey May Fowles knock the cover off the ball in the Wordfest Lab at Memorial Park Library. Both heavy hitters present new books that toss a curveball into our attitudes about baseball, both on and off the field, revealing how the game gives us insight into how we could all live better lives. A guaranteed homerun this summer, this event is perfect for anyone looking for a fresh take on why sports matter, and how they change our vision of the world.
