Calendar Alert: Summery Nonfiction at Dartmouth, July 1: Jim Collins, Kristen Laine

It's not mystery, it's not poetry, but sometimes I like hearing things from a different point of view and the information and discussion can provoke the writer's muse, I think. So here's a short announcement from Dartmouth College:

On Tuesday, July 1, Kristen Laine and Jim Collins will be reading from their recent non-fiction works in the Wren Room at Sanborn House at 4:00 pm.

Jim Collins, a former editor of Dartmouth Alumni Magazine and Yankee, has written magazine articles for many national publications. His recent book, The Last Best League, is a narrative account of a season in the Cape Cod Baseball League - the country's premier collegiate summer league and launching pad to the pros.

Kristen Laine is an award-winning journalist whose commentaries can be heard on Vermont Public Radio. Laine returned to her hometown, Elkhart, Indiana to write the story of The Concord High School Marching Minutemen and the resulting book, American Band won the 2007 L.L. Winship/PEN New England award for non-fiction.

There will be a small reception following the reading in the Poetry Room. For directions,
