Mike Lupica at Boswell for Strike Zone
Pre-registration has ended for our Mike Lupica event, but you're in luck. We've got enough room at Boswell for walk-up attendees. See you at 6:30 pm.

Attention sports fans! You've seen Mike Lupica on ESPN's The Sports Reporters or on his eponymous show on ESPN2. His column Shooting from the Lip has been syndicated nationally by The New York Daily News and The Sporting Life has been an Esquire feature for many years. Now he hosts the Mike Lupica podcast.

But right now we're talking about his kids books. Sports novels are a great way to get many reluctant readers hooked on books. And along with Kwame Alexander and Matt Christopher, Lupica's books are among the most recommended.

Now Mike Lupica visits Boswell with Strike Zone, a timely heartfelt novel about a young baseball prodigy and his immigrant family living in todays America. Lupica appears on Friday, September 13, 6:30 pm at Boswell. This event is free but registration is requested at Folks who sign up will get 10% off their copy of Strike Zone.

School Library Journal offered this praise for Strike Zone, which takes place ten years after Lupica's #1 bestseller, Heat: "Readers will find themselves rooting for Michael as he struggles with the loss of his father, stumbles into his first boy-girl relationship, and yearns to play baseball. The sports scenes are especially well written; fittingly, the euphoric finale takes place at Yankee Stadium. [Lupica] keeps his lively plot on course with humor, crisp dialogue, and true-to-life characters."

Strike Zone is best for kids ten and up, but many of Lupica's novels are for even younger reading levels. Lupica is also slotted to write new entries in Robert B Parker's Sunny Randall series. So we can enthusiastically state that Lupica's visit is for all ages.
