Join us on Sunday, April 13, 2014, from 4-5:45 p.m. for fun, fellowship, and an intellectually intriguing presentation with Colorado College's Steve Hayward, professor of English.
No matter how you slice it, whenever Canadians start talking about baseball there's something not quite right. Is there such a thing as Canadian baseball fiction? Probably; it's a question that's never crossed your mind. In a perfect world all Canadians would write about hockey; and if not hockey, curling; and if not curling, ice fishing; and if not ice fishing, not at all. And yet, somehow, Canadians have managed to produce some of the most enduring baseball literature that has been written. Join associate professor of English and noted baseball writer Steve Hayward for a discussion about the specific pull baseball exerts on the literary imagination. Hayward will discuss the poetic and mythical merits of the game, and read from his own work, as well as the work of some of his fellow Canadian baseball writers. Peanuts and crackerjacks are encouraged, but not required. Knuckleballers need not apply.
