The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Created – Book Discussion
November 12, 11:30am-1:00pm
$15 preregistered/prepaid, includes lunch.
Baseball’s famous player: his life, his legacy and all he contributed to owners, teams, players and skill. Jane Leary illuminates Ruth’s place in American cultural history. She draws a picture of a flamboyant figure who exploited the public’s appetite to forge a new sporting celebrity.
Our discussion leaders: Sister Claren Sellner is a supportive baseball fan, an avid gardener and when not engaged in those two things, reads and enjoys facilitating book discussions. Mary Wellik is a retired public health nurse, student of cultural geography, world traveler and an avid reader.
