Book Signing: Summer of ’68: The Season That Changed Baseball—and America—Forever
The Baseball Reliquary and Burbank Public Library present a discussion and book signing with Tim Wendel, author of Summer of ’68: The Season That Changed Baseball—and America—Forever. Wendel will also narrate a PowerPoint presentation of images from the book.
Tim Wendel is the author of nine books, including High Heat, Far From Home, Red Rain, and Castro’s Curveball. A founding editor of USA Today Baseball Weekly, he has written for Esquire, GQ, and Washingtonian magazines. He teaches writing at Johns Hopkins University and has appeared on CNN, ESPN, SiriusXM, and NPR, and recently served as an exhibit advisor to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He lives in Vienna, Virginia.
The program, which is free of charge and will be held in the Burbank Central Library Auditorium, 110 N. Glenoaks Blvd., Burbank, California, is made possible, in part, by a grant to the Baseball Reliquary from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
