Smithsonian Friday and Fenton Street Saturday

I’m looking forward to spending Black Friday November 29th at the Smithsonian’s American History Museum outside the gift shop on the second floor (Mall Entrance). I’ll be there from noon to 3:00 pm signing copies of my book Deadball, a Metaphysical Baseball Novel. For those interested, here’s a link to the Smithsonian web site.

Saturday November 30th I will be at the Fenton Street Market in Downtown Silver Spring from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. It’s Small Business Saturday (and you can’t much smaller than my business!) so please stop by and say hello. My booth is No. 26. Here’s a map of the market area and here’s a link to Fenton Street Holiday Market web site.

At the Smithsonian with Author Paul Dickson

Authors Paul Dickson and David Stinson at the Smithsonian's American History Museum

Thanks to everyone who came by to talk baseball this past Saturday April 6th at the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History. I was there with Paul Dickson, author of the award winning Bill Veeck, Baseball’s Greatest Maverick.We had a joint book signing outside the gift shop on the second floor.

Mr. Dickson is a man of many talents and I enjoyed talking baseball with him along with discussing many of the other topics he has written about during his extensive career – 65 published books and counting. Me? I have two, but who’s counting?

If you have not done so yet, and are a fan of the game, be sure to pick up a copy of his biography about Bill Veeck – perhaps soon to be a major motion picture!

On ESPN Radio and Back at the Smithsonian

If you find yourself in the four-state listening area surrounding Greencastle, PA, this Friday November 23rd, be sure to tune into ESPN 1380 AM for Gordy’s Sports World at 1 pm. I will be Gordy’s guest talking about by my book Deadball, A Metaphysical Baseball Novel.

The Sunday following Thanksgiving – November 25th – I will be making my third appearance in D.C. at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, signing copies of Deadball next to the gift shop on the second floor near the museum’s entrance just off the National Mall.

Remember, Deadball makes a great holiday gift.
