Here's the new display at Barnes & Noble Palisades Center mall, ready for the big #DiamondsFromTheDugout author event and bookfair at 2 pm ET on Saturday, Jan. 6! I'll discuss the No. 1 bestselling baseball book and sign copies, and the bookfair will benefit the Clarkstown Family Resource Center - part of the massive Clarkstown School District. I'll stay there until about 5, so there will be plenty of time to sign, but get there early if you want to catch a baseball discussion. If you're in the NYC area that day, come out and join us, for a good cause! See the book tour page for the latest updates on official author events and the #BarnesandNobleStormingTour.
Thanks to a standing-room-only crowd that came out to Barnes & Noble in Evansville on Saturday for a fantastic book launch event! We teamed up to raise funds for Public Education Foundation of Evansville, and I am especially thankful to PEF Executive Director Amy Walker for speaking to the audience about PEF's mission, and to Kathy Singer of PEF and Mariana of Barnes & Noble for organizing such a beautiful and memorable afternoon. Here's a slideshow of the afternoon!
One takeaway: People are buying DIAMONDS FROM THE DUGOUT not just as a single copy, but in batches as gifts for so many people from all walks who love baseball, no matter what your team or town.
We're off and running! Looking forward to many more book signings and readings to come! Please be sure to LIKE the official Facebook page for our book at facebook.com/MarkNewmanAuthor! Ask your local Barnes & Noble if they have the book yet, and please leave a review if you order it online, as that will help us appear in search results. Thanks!
