The Dubuque Area Writers Guild honored me with an invitation to read excerpts from my upcoming biography of the late Red Faber.
A member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Faber grew up in his native Cascade and Dubuque. He pitched 20 years for the Chicago White Sox. When the Sox won the 1917 World Series, Faber was the winning pitcher in three of Chicago's four victories.
The guild meeting will 6:30-9 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, at Isabella's, 1375 Locust St. (downstairs in the Ryan House). The public is welcome.
