OCTOBER BOOK OF THE MONTH: THE PITCHER by William Hazelgrove
THE PITCHER by William Hazelgrove is destined to become a classic. It is well-written, funny, heart-warming, engaging, easy to read, romantic and uplifting. On the surface this story may seem to be all about baseball and pitchers, but it’s more than that.
A Junior Library Guild Selection, THE PITCHER is about a loving and determined Hispanic mother who will endure anything and survive everything for the love of her child and his right to fulfill his dreams; it’s about overcoming prejudice and poverty; it’s about second chances; and most of all, it’s about learning to believe in yourself.
