NEXT PUBLIC OUTING:
I will be pitching a doubleheader, so to speak, on Jan. 25, 2017, at the Port Washington Public Library on Long Island. First at 7 PM I will be the guest for Randy Cohen’s provocative podcast Person Place Thing, on which I will explain my choices. Then at 8:15 PM I will conduct a session of “sports trivia” with questions I have prepared. For info: http://www.pwpl.org/wp-content/uploads/January-2017-Newsletter.pdf. Hope to see you there.
