Meet, Mingle, Read: Fenway Park

The Director’s “Meet, Mingle, Read” series continues at the Central Library this Wednesday (March 28th) at 7:00 p.m. Join us in welcoming authors Ron Driscoll and John Powers who will discuss their new book, Fenway Park: A Salute to the Coolest, Cruelest, Longest-Running Baseball Stadium in America (Running Press). Since it opened in 1912, Fenway Park has become an iconic destination for baseball fans everywhere and a source of great civic pride for generations of New Englanders. Home to the Boston Red Sox—as well as many important non-baseball events over the decades—it is consistently among the most visited and toured sports arenas in the country. Published in association with the Boston Globe, Fenway Park is the product of an all-star cast of writers, photographers, and baseball historians. It includes more than 250 classic and never-before published photographs, a removable poster featuring the rare blueprints of Fenway’s historic 1931 renovation, a double gatefold of Fenway’s famous Green Monster, a foreword by Jim Lonborg, and a special introduction by former Globe publisher Benjamin Taylor. With a decade-by-decade narrative detailing the remarkable history of the Red Sox—plus over 100 intriguing illustrated sidebars covering memorable events like concerts, political rallies, papal visits, people profiles, and much more—Fenway Park is a collector’s item as well as the perfect gift for any fan of baseball or Boston.

All are invited to attend this free program. Copies of this beautiful coffee table book will be available for purchase from The Harvard Coop Bookstore for $30. Light refreshments will be served.
