Baseball and Books

The Friends of the UNCG Libraries invite you to a free talk by Brett Friedlander author of "Chasing Moonlight: The True Story of Field of Dreams' Doc Graham", at 4:30 pm in the Dogwood Room of the Elliott University Center at UNCG, followed by a book signing at the UNCG-Wake Forest baseball game at the UNCG baseball stadium, which begins at 6 pm. Admission to the game is also free. Moonlight Graham was made famous by Burt Lancaster in the film, but his real life is also interesting. Moonlight's brother was UNC system president Frank Porter Graham, and his cousin was UNCG Chancellor Edward Kidder Graham. He also juggled a career in minor league baseball with his medical training, Co-sponsored with the Athletics Department. Together we invite you all to participate in the American Library Association's program, Step up to the Plate to play some baseball trivia and be entered to win a drawing for a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstow…
