Coming soon! The Jim Bouton interview

Ron KaplanContributor IAugust 26, 2010

 

I can still picture it in my mind: Reading Ball Four during summer camp days back in 1970. In fact, I still have that original volume in my library. So it’s shocking to me that it’s been 40 years since Jim Bouton’s watershed memoir was published.

Bouton was quite generous with his time in speaking with "The Bookshelf" today as he basks in the adulation that comes with having written what the New York Public Library dubbed one of its “Books of the Century.” Bouton will be the featured speaker at a special event marking the anniversary sponsored by the Baseball Reliquary in Burbank on Sept. 18.

I’ll be posting the interview as a Podcast over the weekend.
