James Sturm launches The Golem's Mighty Swing on opening night! : in White River Junction, VT
Join James Sturm on opening night for the Upper Valley Nighthawks baseball game on June 10th, 6:30pm at the Maxfield Sports Complex (120 Lesle Drive White River Junction, Vermont)! Local cartoonist, and founder of the hometown's Cartoon Center of Studies will have a booth set up selling and signing copies of D+Q's beautiful spring release of The Golem's Mighty Swing (with the help of Norwich Bookstore)!
We're so excited to have these two events in conjunction with each other given their coinciding themes. Set in the depression era, The Golem's Mighty swing recounts the tale of a barnstorming Jewish baseball team. Through this lens Sturm places spirituality at the core of American sports, and in doing so, illuminates a permeating spirit in the complex corners of American identity. It is, of course, ultimately a love for baseball that brings a divisive community together. So with that in mind, we want to give a big thank you to the Upper Valley Nighthawks football game for hosting James! We can't think of an occasion more befitting to celebrate America's rich spirit for baseball and storytelling.
The Golem's Mighty Swing is in stores May 16th—see you all at the game!
