WHY WE LOVE BASEBALL News
Hi everybody. So I wanted to put up a little one-stop shopping place for all the breaking news on WHY WE LOVE BASEBALL! So here we go.
The book: WHY WE LOVE BASEBALL
Publication date: September 5.
A few early reviews:
Booklist (⭐️ review!)
If you preorder the book, you can get bonus content that was cut from the book last minute, including an essay about the biggest baseball moment from my childhood and an essay from Michael Schur about the best baseball performance he ever saw live. Just sign up here:
Los Angeles Event Moved to Ebell!
On September 12, Molly Knight and I will be having a blast talking about the book and we will be joined by none other than Nick Offerman and Mike Schur. The event was originally set up to be at the amazing Chevalier’s Bookstore but it sold out so fast that the event has now moved to the ballroom at the Ebell Theater. We’d love to see you there.
Note, this is now a ticketed event — you get one or two tickets for the price of a book. I’ve had a couple of people say they already preordered the book and ask if they could get in based on that. Obviously, we are doing this event for Chevalier’s so anyone who buys the book through the bookstore has to get priority. But if you already preordered the book and would like to be on the waiting list, email us here and we will see what we can do!
