Jane Leavy to appear near Jupiter

Author Jane Leavy will be appearing near Jupiter, Florida.

Here's information I recieved via email:
I thought the readers of your blog would be interested in meeting Jane Leavy, who has written extensively on baseball and spring training. She will be speaking next week in Stuart, which is just north of Roger Dean Stadium, where the Cardinals are training.

Leavy is an award-winning sportswriter who last year published "The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood." She also wrote a biography of Sandy Koufax, "A Lefty's Legacy." And she has a new book, an excerpt of which will appear in the March 26 issue of Sports Illustrated.

Leavy has excellent stories about the Cardinals in the 1964 World Series. Read one of them here.

Leavy will be speaking at the Blake Museum in Stuart, Florida, on March 22 at 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. She will also answer questions and autograph books.
