CHAPTER BOOK CLUB

The Halsey Hall Chapter book club meets bi-monthly, usually on the first or second weekend of even-numbered months.

The book club was started in August 2002 and has drawn anywhere from five to 12 members at any event. The club has been meeting in the coffee area of Barnes & Noble in Roseville.

The book club is open to all chapter members, whether or not they have read the book (there are no quizzes). Future book selection suggestions are always welcome.

For more information about the book club, check the current issue of The Holy Cow! for the upcoming meeting.

The first book selection was Hitter: The Life and Turmoils of Ted Williams, by Ed Linn. The club has since read an eclectic mix of baseball nonfiction and novels, including The Great American Novel by Philip Roth, The Power and the Darkness, a biography of Josh Gibson by Mark Ribowsky, Walter Johnson: Baseball’s Big Train by Henry Thomas, Play for a Kingdom by Tom Dyja, Moneyball by Michael Lewis, The Duke of Havana by Steve Fainaru, A Whole Different Ball Game by Marvin Miller, and Paths to Glory, co-authored by chapter member Dan Levitt.

Here is a complete list of book selections. In addition, for a few years, the group watched the video of a baseball game and discussed it. These are also noted in the list.
