LA Times Book Club “Boys of Summer” Event at UCLA

LA Times Book Club names ‘Boys of Summer’ as its next selection

To celebrate this book, the joy of baseball, and our own Dodgers, we will be hosting an event at Jackie Robinson’s alma mater, UCLA, in their prestigious Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 26.  Author Roger Kahn, Dodger great Maury Wills, LA Times sports columnist Bill Plaschke and Dodger alumni will be there in person for a great conversation about baseball in our community.  Mickey Kantor, former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and avid baseball fan, will moderate the conversation.
