Meet 'The Truth About Ruth' author Peter Handrinos

There are so many baseball books coming out this spring, it's hard to keep on top of reading them all. One of the books I really enjoyed was Peter Handrinos' The Truth About Ruth and More: Behind Yankees Myths, Legends, and Lore. And the author has asked me to tell Squawker readers about his "Meet the Author" event for this book:

The place: Borders Books at Park Avenue & 57th Street, midtown Manhattan
The date: Thursday, April 2nd
The time: 7 pm

"After the event," he says, "there will be a complimentary bar reception, so hopefully it’ll be a good night for fans of Yankee baseball and/or free drinks."

If my life schedule allows, I'm going to try to make it to this. Any Squawker readers interested in joining us at the event?

On the subject of books, have you read any good baseball books lately? If so, tell us about it!

Nice, meet an author and an open bar. If I'm not working I might have to check it out.

Also, can you guys update your blogroll. You have my old url. The new one is www.bronxbaseballdaily.com or www.bronxbaseballdaily.baby-bombers.com

Thanks

I'm sure there will be quite a few Yankee fans in attendance there.

I actually haven't read any baseball books in awhile. The last one I read was Haunted Baseball by Mickey Bradley and Dan Gordon which was really interesting. There is supposed to be a sequel.
