Heather Lang is the author of five non-fiction children's picture books. Her latest, Anybody's Game, tells the story of Kathryn Johnston, who became the first girl to play Little League baseball.

FanGraphs Book Club (Online Chat)
Monday July 23 | 9:00PM - 10:30PM
In the first-ever online meeting of the FanGraphs Book Club, Silver Unicorn Bookstore owner Paul Swydan -- who was a writer for FanGraphs in his previous life -- will lead a discussion at FanGraphs.com about The Only Rule Is It Has To Work, the New York Times-bestselling book that answers the question "what happens when you put two nerds in charge of every aspect of a baseball team?"
Set in the early 1900s in Boston's North End, local author Jane Healey has staged a wonderful novel about family clashes and romantic entanglements, career struggles and cultural prejudice. Four friends long for more in their lives, but they can take comfort in their weekly get togethers - the Saturday Evening Girls Club.
Redbook called Healey's novel, "A breathtaking ode to female empowerment and the American Dream, The Saturday Evening Girls Club belongs on every feminist's bookshelf. It's the ultimate battle cry for female potential."
Join us on the 24th to celebrate this wonderful book -- which is perfect for book clubs -- by this local author!
Author Event: Dina Vargo
Thursday July 26 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM
In her second book, local author and historian Dina Vargo shines a light into the cobwebbed corners of Boston’s hidden history. From an annual celebration called Pope's Night, to a turf war in Chinatown that ended in a massacre, to the old Boston Guardian newspaper, there is more to Boston's history than meets the eye.
Come explore Boston's hidden history with us as we celebrate this newly released book!
Author Event: Keith Law
Saturday July 28 | 1:00PM - 4:00PM
Keith Law has been a national baseball analyst for ESPN, specializing in scouting and the MLB draft for over a decade. Last year, he collected his lifetime of wisdom on the sport in his excellent book, Smart Baseball.
The book has something for every baseball fan, and is a baseball education in three parts. The book brings the layperson into the world of 21st-century baseball statistics while still teaching something to those who are ensconced in that world. It's an excellent read for anyone who is looking to learn more about the game.
Join us as we celebrate this wonderful book!
