Wait Till Next Year Book Excerpt:

When historian Goodwin was six years old, her father taught her how to keep score for ‘their’ team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, which forged a lifelong bond between father and daughter. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year is a coming-of-age memoir in the era of Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese and Duke Snider, when baseball truly was a national pastime that brought whole communities together. With her radio by her side and scorecard to hand, she recreates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. Weaved between the games and the seasons, Goodwin tells the story of a changing America – from the lunacy of the Cold War alarm drills to McCarthy and the Rosenburg trials – as well as her own loss of innocence encapsulated by her mother’s death, her father’s lapse into despair and the Dodger’s departure from Brooklyn in 1957 following the destruction of the iconic Ebbets Field stadium. Poignant, unsentimental and deeply eloquent, Wait Till Next Year is a profound memoir about childhood and loss, baseball, and the power of sport to bind families and heal loss and reveal as metaphor the evolving heart of a nation.

Wait Till Next Year Book Excerpt:

By the award-winning author of Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year re-creates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. We meet the people who most influenced Goodwin’s early life: her mother, who taught her the joy of books but whose debilitating illness left her housebound: and her father, who taught her the joy of baseball and to root for the Dodgers of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, and Gil Hodges. Most important, Goodwin describes with eloquence how the Dodgers’ leaving Brooklyn in 1957, and the death of her mother soon after, marked both the end of an era and, for her, the end of childhood.

Summary of Doris Kearns Goodwin s Wait Till Next Year Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was six when my father gave me a bright-red scorebook that opened my heart to the game of baseball. I spent my afternoons sitting cross-legged before the squat Philco radio which stood as a permanent fixture on our porch in Rockville Centre, on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. #2 My father, Michael Francis Aloysius Kearns, was a short man who appeared much larger on account of his erect bearing, broad chest, and thick neck. He had a ruddy Irish complexion, and his green eyes flashed with humor and vitality. He called me Bubbles because I seemed to enjoy so many things. #3 My father was a huge fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers, and he loved to recount the stories of the team’s past. He was able to pass the civil-service exam because of his extensive knowledge of baseball statistics. #4 When I picture my mother, Helen, she is sitting in her favorite cushioned chair and she is reading. She was slim and tall, several inches taller than my father. Her hair, primly curled with the soft waves of a permanent, was brown touched with gray.

Facing West Book Excerpt:

"The dramatic growth of Christianity around the world in the last century has shifted the balance of power within the faith away from the traditional strongholds of Europe and the United States to the Global South. While we typically imagine Western missionaries carrying religion to the ends of the earth, David R. Swartz shows that the line of influence has often run the other way, as evangelicals in nations such as Korea, India, and Uganda shaped the American church from abroad. Swartz tells stories of evangelicals crossing national boundaries, offering new insights into a tradition that imagines itself as simultaneously American and part of a global communion"--

Wait Till Next Year the Story of Jackie Robinson Book Excerpt:

Wait tell Next Year is the inside story of one of the most dramatic personalities of our time and a re-creation of many of the most exciting moments in modern baseball. If nothing else had counted but hits, runs and errors, Jackie Robinson wouldn't have had many problems during his years as a major figure in the sports world. But his great ability as a player was often over-shadowed by the fact that he was the first Negro in major league baseball. He was - and still is - a man of burning pride and, above all, courage. He is a man who plays to win, on and off the baseball diamond. Jackie Robinson was born in a share-croppers cabin in Georgia. He first won national fame as a college and basketball star at U.C.L.A. And later played in the Negro Baseball leagues. Then, at twenty-six backed by Branch Ricky's tough support, he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. During his controversial record-breaking years with the Dodgers - and the important years since his retirement from baseball in 1956 - he has fought constantly for Negro equality and an end to racial antagonism and discrimination. WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR then is much more than a narrative of Jackie Robinson's brilliant sports career. The whole story is here, including the problems that confronted his mother and his wife and children, and the dramatic scenes when Robinson refused to submit to prejudice in the Army, in housing for his family, in baseball training camps. Robinson himself describes for the reader some of these crisis in life, and his wife speaks of the events which especially affected her. Carl Rowan one of the country's finest reporters has written this biography of a great athlete with warmth, sympathy and full awareness of its value as a spirited American document.
