I am excited to announce Solitary Pleasure's first live book chat, featuring a discussion of Chad Harbach's highly praised baseball-themed first novel, The Art of Fielding. Check back in this spot on Monday, November 7th, at 7pm, for what I hope to be the first of a monthly online book discussion. Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times calls The Art of Fielding "a magical, melancholy story about friendship and coming of age that marks the debut of an immensely talented writer." And what better way to kick off the new baseball season than with a book about the America's favorite pastime. (Everyone knows what a sports fanatic I am.) So pick up the book, get reading, and be here the first Monday of November!
