UPDATED Feb. 15: Join the Friends of Robbins Library for this interesting virtual presentation with author Marty Gitlin, "The Ultimate Presentation for Red Sox Nation," set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16.
The event is free and open to all; registration is required on Eventbrite at redsoxwithmartygitlin.eventbrite.com.
Gitlin has written about numerous books for more than a dozen publishers since turning his attention to strictly freelance writing in 2006.
Most of those works have been in the educational market, but he has recently gained success as an author of trade historical, pop culture and sports books, with such titles as Powerful Moments in Sports: The Most Significant Sporting Events in American History (2017), A Celebration of Animation: The 100 Greatest Cartoon Characters in Television History (2018), The Ultimate Boston Red Sox Time Machine Book (2020) and Kyrie Irving: Uncle Drew, Little Mountain and Enigmatic NBA Superstar (2019).
At this virtual presentation, get the scoop on such events as the refusal of the New York Giants to go up against the Boston Americans (now the Red Sox) in the 1904 World Series, and of course, the famous Curse of the Bambino.
