LA Times Book Club names ‘Boys of Sum­mer’ as its next se­lec­tion

Los Angeles Times - - CALIFORNIA -

Dear reader, Base­ball sea­son is upon us, and there’s no bet­ter time to pick up the LA Times’ new book club se­lec­tion, “The Boys of Sum­mer” by Roger Kahn. It’s a clas­sic work of sports jour­nal­ism that weaves to­gether Kahn’s mem­o­ries of grow­ing up within shout­ing dis­tance of Eb­bets Field, and sto­ries from his years cov­er­ing the team dur­ing Jackie Robin­son’s leg­endary reign as a player and civil rights ac­tivist. To cel­e­brate this book, the joy of base­ball, and our own Dodgers, we will be host­ing an event at Jackie Robin­son’s alma mater, UCLA, in their pres­ti­gious Hall of Fame on Sun­day, April 26. Au­thor Roger Kahn, Dodger great Maury Wills, LA Times sports colum­nist Bill Plaschke and Dodger alumni will be there in per­son for a great con­ver­sa­tion about base­ball in our com­mu­nity. Mickey Kan­tor, for­mer U.S. Sec­re­tary of Com­merce and avid base­ball fan, will mod­er­ate the con­ver­sa­tion. I hope to see you there.
