Nov 01 St. Louis, MO St. Louis Public Library – Central Branch
Time: 7:00pm. Address: 1301 Olive Street. Left Bank Books and the St. Louis Public Library present award-winning former sportswriter Jane Leavy, who will sign and discuss her new book, The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Created! He lived in the present tense—in the camera’s lens. He swung the heaviest bat, earned the most money, and incurred the biggest fines. He expanded notions of the possible. Like all the new-fangled gadgets then flooding the marketplace—radios, automatic clothes washers, microphones and loudspeakers—Babe Ruth “made impossible events happen.” Aided by his crucial partnership with Christy Walsh, Ruth drafted the blueprint for modern athletic stardom. Drawing from more than 250 interviews, a trove of previously untapped documents, and Ruth family records, Jane Leavy breaks through the mythology that has obscured the legend and delivers the man. “Entertaining and colorful…. Leavy’s captivating biography reveals Ruth as a man who swung his bat with the same purposeful abandon that he lived his life.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) This event is free and open to the public, but proof of puchase of The Big Fella from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. Pre-order at www.left-bank.com. Parking: Lot one block north; street parking (meters free after 7pm). For directions and public transportation information, click here. Buy Tickets More information
