A special BAMM storytelling performance

Presented by storyteller Carol Birch
Community Room, 3rd Floor

Of Gehrig, Paul Gallico wrote: “We need stories like that of Lou Gehrig, tales of honest, trustworthy men with life patterns that are not crossed by deceit or chicanery, vice or intrigue, whose careers are not poisoned by double-dealing, jealousy, or opportunism with love stories that are simple and virtuous and true.” Here is the story of a man who excelled off, and on, the field.
