Ed Henry is returning to Browseabout! He'll be appearing to sign copies of 42 Faith: The Rest of the Jackie Robinson Story.

Journalist and baseball lover Ed Henry reveals for the first time the backstory of faith that guided Jackie Robinson into not only the baseball record books but the annals of civil rights advancement as well. Through recently discovered sermons, interviews with Robinson's family and friends, and even an unpublished book by the player himself, Henry details a side of Jackie's humanity that few have taken the time to see.

With many baseball stories to enthrall even the most ardent enthusiast, 42 Faith also digs deep into why Jackie was the man he was and what both drove him and challenged him after his retirement. From his early years before baseball, to his time with Rickey and the Dodgers, to his failing health in his final years, we see a man of faith that few have recognized.

The signing will take place on Sunday, October 8th, from 9 until 11 AM.

Come join our teen book club! The selection for October's discussion is Because of the Sun by Jenny Torres Sanchez.

Dani learned to tolerate her existence in suburban Florida with her brash and seemingly unloving mother by embracing the philosophy: Why care? It will only hurt. So when her mother is killed in a sudden and violent manner, Dani goes into an even deeper protection mode: total numbness. It's the only way she can go on.

Dani's life is thrown into further turmoil when she is sent to New Mexico to live with an aunt she never knew she had. The awkwardness between them is palpable. To escape, Dani takes long walks in the merciless heat. One day, she meets Paulo, who understands how much Dani is hurting. Although she is hesitant at first, a mutual trust and affection develops between them. And as she and her aunt begin to connect, Dani learns about her mother's past. Forgiving isn't easy, but maybe it's the only way to move forward.

The book club is led by Karen Willey, an 18 year teaching veteran who has spent 17 of those years teaching Language Arts to middle school students.

The meeting will take place on Saturday, October 14th, beginning at 11:00 AM and ending around noon. Snacks and drinks will be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
