A Man, a Dog, a Basebeall Team

6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

LaSalle Public Library

LaSalle, IL

 

This is the true story of Jack Graney, his bull terrier Larry, the Cleveland major league baseball team, and the pursuit of the pennant from 1910-1920. Larry was not only selected by the players to be their mascot, he performed on-field tricks in all American-League cities and was loved by fans young and old. This is a story of devotion, commitment, and persistence, illustrating what it means to be major league. Jack Graney was first signed by the Cubs, and was then traded to the Indians. How ironic that these two teams first met in the 2016 World Series. LaSalle Public Library, 305 Marquette Street, LaSalle, IL. For more information call 815-223-2341.

Self-Publishing through CreateSpace

10:00 a.m. - noon

Tinley Park Public Library

Tinley Park, IL

 

 

Colorful and highly informative, this presentation depicts the step-by-step process of publishing a book (a physical, hold-in-your-hand book — with the ability to convert to an ebook) through Amazon's self-publishing division, CreateSpace. This can be done at no cost, though it's also possible to pay CreateSpace to do some of the work. From signing on and setting up an account; to making decisions on page layout, type face, and cover design; to submitting and proofreading; and, finally, to publication of the book — each step is illustrated and explained. Although the examples come from publishing with CreateSpace, all of the information is valuable for people who want to self-publish through other online sources, too. Ample time is allowed for questions at each step of the process. Tinley Park Public Library  7851 Timber Drive, Tinley Park, IL. Note: Registration is required for this program. Registration begins August 20, 2017. For more information call 708-532-0160 or check Events on the Tinley Park Public Library web page, http://www.tplibrary.org/events/cale

When Women Played Baseball:

The Story of Margaret, Nellie, and Rose

7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Wolfeboro, NH

 

In 1934 three young women, still in their teens, played hardball on the last traveling Bloomer Girl baseball team. Their stories include abandonment, loss at sea, triumphs, world war and, always, baseball. Margaret, Nellie, and Rose came from different backgrounds and had different reasons for playing baseball. When the season was over they followed different paths — but playing baseball profoundly affected their lives and helped determine their futures.  Wright Museum of World War II, 77 Center Street, Wolfeboro, NH. For more information call 603-569-1212.
