PETE ROSE: AN AMERICAN DILEMMA Book Launch with Kostya Kennedy
Mar 13, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
New York Times bestselling author Kostya Kennedy presents PETE ROSE: AN AMERICAN DILEMMA
Twenty-five years after his lifetime ban from baseball, Kostya Kennedy delivers a fascinating re-assessment of Pete Rose’s life and career through the lens of today’s post-steroid world. His book examines Rose as an inspiring and uniquely talented baseball player who wound up with more base hits than anyone in baseball history; as the player whose shameless gambling on baseball while managing the Cincinnati Reds led him to be permanently barred from the game and from baseball’s Hall of Fame; and as a beguiling showman now in the bristling evensong of his unique and original life. It asks: Do we feel any differently about Pete Rose today? Should we?
Kostya is an assistant managing editor at Sports Illustrated and the New York Times bestselling author of 56: Joe DiMaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports, winner of the 2011 Casey Award and runner-up for the 2012 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing.
