Attention baseball fans . . .Northsiders and Southsiders welcome!

Please join us for an evening with Jay Feldman
author of the novel Suitcase Sefton and the American Dream

In Suitcase Sefton and the American Dream, Feldman tells the story of Mac “Suitcase” Sefton, a scout for the New York Yankees, who discovers a cannon-armed lefty named Jerry Yamada at a Japanese American internment camp in Arizona during World War II. As Sefton schemes to get the pitcher released from the camp, he is forced to confront his own conceptions of race, culture, and politics, as he discovers the meaning of family and love. Through the filter of baseball, Suitcase Sefton and the American Dream addresses issues of personal integrity, racism, internment, and American dreams.

The author will read and sign books at the JASC
