| No Comments

Thank you for your patience.

remembering_fenway_park.jpgSportswriter Harvey Frommer gives his account of historic Fenway Park and the fabled Boston Red Sox franchise on Saturday, May 14, at 2 p.m., in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room as part of AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary.

Noted oral historian and author of numerous sports books, Frommer will talk about his book Remembering Fenway Park, the team's personnel, the ballpark--the oldest in the major leagues, opening in 1912--and team history. The talk will feature slides of priceless historical photographs, many never before published, and personal accounts by almost 140 voices (two of them 100 years old). Envisioned as a fraternal "twin" to Frommer's Remembering Yankee Stadium, his narrative fuses present and past Red Sox players and opponents, fans, media people, ballpark workers like the scoreboard operator and head groundskeeeper, team executives, a nun, a monsignor and a bishop.

To Have and To Kill hc c.JPGAfter more than a decade of penning bestsellers in her KEY News Thriller series, author Mary Jane Clarkhas created a new backdrop for her suspense novels. Clark will discuss To Have and to Kill, the inaugural book in the Wedding Cake Mysteries series, as part of AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary on Thursday, May 19, at 7 p.m., in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room. Clark's originally scheduled visit in February was postponed due to snow.

To Have and to Kill is centered on struggling actress Piper Donovan, who fresh off her broken engagement, is forced to move back in with her parents and reluctantly steps into the family bakery business. After Donovan agrees to create the wedding cake of a friend and daytime TV star, she soon finds herself entangled in a murder mystery that could derail the nuptials.
