GUEST AUTHOR SERIES: Molly Knight, The Best Team Money Can Buy
Sunday, August 23rd, National Steinbeck Center. Reading & Book Signing 3PM. Members' Reception 2PM
John Steinbeck's great, great niece, Molly Knight, has written a blockbuster book about the most expensive and notorious team in major league baseball:
John Steinbeck insisted that his beloved younger sister Mary was a better writer than he. A love of writing is, no doubt, strong in the Steinbeck family. Mary’s great granddaughter has hit a home run with her first book The Best Team Money Can Buy. (Steinbeck also wrote about sports—once—in a little essay called “Then My Arm Glassed up.” He admits that his interest in sports is “cool” and yet his wife Elaine was a staunch Dodgers fan: “I guess our family devoted more pure spiritual energy to the Dodgers than to any other religious organization. This, of course, was before they defected to the West.”)
