America, 1976: colorful, complex, and combustible, a place of Bicentennial celebrations and busing riots, Olympic glory and Legionnaire’s Disease. On the diamond, the 1976 season witnessed the crowning of the Cincinnati “Big Red Machine” dynasty, George Steinbrenner's first World Series with the Yankees, and the heroics of Mike Schmidt, Mark Fidrych, and George Brett. Join us to hear journalist, pop-culture historian, and avid baseball fan Dan Epstein read from his new book from St. Martin’s Press, Stars & Strikes: Baseball and America in the Bicentennial Summer of ’76.
