The Book Garden in Frenchtown will be hosting author Tommy Reynolds on Sunday, Nov. 8th for a book discussion and signing of his new novel. Reynolds’ debut novel, The Game: Baseball and America Grown’ Up Together, follows the Miller family as they chase the American dream from the green fields of Ireland to the heartland of America. Trace the paths baseball and America take as they grow and struggle in unison over time. As baseball becomes a part of the American fabric as the country becomes a world power, with baseball ahead of the curve on some of the issues of the times; capitalism (the good and the bad), civil rights, unions, personal liberties. Reynolds takes readers on a thoughtful (and often funny) gallop across three centuries, fraught with laughter and irony. Tommy Reynolds is a lifelong, passionate baseball fan, who was pulled in hook-line and sinker as a kid by Chris Chambliss’ 1976 pennant-clinching home run, which sent the Yankees to their first World Series in twelve years. In the midst of a successful business career, he has finally written the novel about his greatest passion, America’s pastime. In his spare time he plays racquetball and umpires men’s league baseball games.   He lives in Clinton, N.J. with his three children. The Book Garden in Frenchtown welcomes author Tommy Reynolds for a book signing and discussion on Sunday, November 8th from 1pm to 3pm. Come out and meet a local author and hear what inspired his great American story. The Book Garden is located at 28 Bridge Street in Frenchtown, NJ.
