Fontbonne/KMOX Book Club Plays Ball

ST. LOUIS – The May Fontbonne University/KMOX Book Club will host Will Leitch, sportswriter and author of “Are We Winning? Fathers and Sons in the New Golden Age of Baseball,” during the May book club event. The book club will take place Friday, May 14, from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Missouri Athletic Club, 405 Washington Ave., downtown St. Louis.

The event is free, but reservations are required. Call 314-444-1827 or e-mail, leave a name and phone number, and reference the “May” book club to reserve a spot today.

Leitch is the founding editor of the sports blog Deadspin. He currently contributes to New York, The New York Times, GQ, Fast Company and Slate, and has authored four books, including his latest. Published this month, “Are We Winning?” humorously describes a trip to Wrigley Field with Leitch’s father to see a game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs. In between personal anecdotes, the book encompasses the game of baseball, relationships between fathers and sons, and the joy of being a fan.
