Pacific Grove author Brad Herzog has written more than 20 books for children, including seven alphabet books about sports (“K is For Kick,” “T is For Touchdown,” etc.). According to his website biography, teenage Brad got to be the “honorary batboy” for his favorite Chicago White Sox. His love of sports continued in his early journalism career with The Ithaca Journal.
But Brad also writes for grownups. Three of his books tell of journeys in small-town America, and his latest non-fiction book is “My Mantelpiece” (available in May). Co-written with Carolyn Goodman, “My Mantelpiece” describes a life of hardship, followed by the murders of a civil rights activist in 1964 (the son of Carolyn Goodman). The book movingly describes social justice struggles through many decades, and highlighted with personal experience.
Meet Brad Herzog at the library on Thursday, April 17, at 7:30pm, hosted by the Friends of PG Library. Donations are requested and refreshments will be served. Don’t be late… our author events are usually very popular!
