Just in time for the spring surge of baseball fever, to say nothing of the opening of the new First National Bank of River Falls Field, the library is hosting author Joe Niese at 6:30pm Thursday, June 12.
Niese's new book is up for several sports writing awards, and his subject, Burleigh Grimes, made it to the Baseball Hall of Fame! Niese will cover Grimes' long and illustrious career first as a pitcher and then as a manager. He will show more than 50 slides, and offer Grimes' personal scrapbook for visitors to view.
Niese will have his books available for sale and signing too.
