Book of the Week #13

Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season by Stewart O'Nan and Stephen King (NY: Scribner, 2004)

As baseball season is about to start, this seemed like a good book for this week.
 "Early in 2004, two writers and Red Sox fans, Stewart O'Nan and Stephen King, decided to chronicle the upcoming season, one of the most hotly anticipated in baseball history. They would sit together at Fenway. They would exchange emails. They would write about the games. And, as it happened, they would witness the greatest comeback ever in sports, and the first Red Sox championship in eighty-six years. What began as a Sox-filled summer like any other is now a fan's notes for the ages." (publisher's blurb)

Stewart O'Nan will be at Gibson's on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 2pm talking about his new novel, Emily Alone.

The Red Sox home opener against the NY Yankees is on 4/8/11. Closer to home, the NH Fisher Cats opener is 4/7/11. May the best teams win!
