"Pride of the Yankees" showing Thursday
Though I am out of the office for four days of vacation "at-home" this week, I am looking forward to heading back downtown Thursday evening.
After sitting in for a brief meeting at the office and signing a few Red Faber books, I will head over to Carnegie-Stout Public Library to "host" the Dubuque Film Society's showing of the baseball movie classic, "Pride of the Yankees," the Hollywood version of the Lou Gehrig story.
The program begins at 6 p.m. Refreshments (including popcorn!) are free.
After the showing, I look forward to a discussion of Gehrig, heroes and baseball during simpler times.
