"42 Is Not Just a Number" by Doreen Rappaport
Say the number 42 and those within earshot immediately think of baseball great Jackie Robinson. Author Doreen Rappaport's new biography of this one-of-a-kind sports legend goes far beyond the 42 on his uniform to let readers know of Robinson's outstanding lifetime achievements. Doreen, a passionate Dodgers fan, talks about the research she conducted that led to "42 Is Not Just a Number," a portrait of a player for all time -- perfect for readers from eight to 12 years old. The event takes place Sunday, October 1 at 2:00 p.m. at Bank Street Book Store.
