From Whitman to Updike, it could be argued that baseball is the favorite sport of American writers. But if for some reason that isn’t the case, we will try our damnedest to prove it at WORD on September 14th when we join forces with our pal Largehearted Boy for a night of baseball stories. With readers Jens Carstensen, Jason Diamond, David Gutowski, Sean Manning (Top of the Order, Things That Need Doing), Howard Megdal (Taking the Field), Caryn Rose (B-Sides and Broken Hearts). Check out the Facebook invite for all the other info.
