Tom Swift, author of Chief Bender’s Burden, will read from and discuss his book Thursday, April 10, 7:00 pm at Monkey See, Monkey Read 425 Division St in Northfield, MN. Afterward, Tom will sign books and answer questions. Refreshments will be served.
Library Journal recently gave Tom’s book a starred review.
“Signal thanks to journalist Swift for this authoritative biography of Charles Albert Bender, the early 20th-century pitcher who managed to shine in both the big leagues and in life while confronting poverty and racism.”
I am currently reading Chief Bender’s Burden. I highly recommend this book. Tom’s writing style makes this book a great read. The story is engaging and the game sequences are very exciting. Tom has recreated many of the games Bender pitched for the Philadelphia Athletics.
The book is currently 20% off the cover price.
