Author Steve Sheinkin Signing - May 24th!

We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday May 24th from 6:00-7:30pm, author Steve Sheinkin will be at Best of Books signing copies of his book, Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team!

Undefeated tells the story of when superstar athlete Jim Thorpe and football legend Pop Warner met in 1904 at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, they forged one of the winningest teams in American football history. Called “the team that invented football,” they took on the best opponents of their day, defeating much more privileged schools such as Harvard and the Army in a series of breathtakingly close calls, genius plays, and bone-crushing hard work. But this is not just an underdog story. It’s an unflinching look at the persecution of Native Americans and its intersection with the beginning of one of the most beloved—and exploitative—pastimes in America, expertly told by nonfiction powerhouse Steve Sheinkin.

If you are unable to attend this event and would like to reserve a SIGNED COPY, call 405-340-9202.

Join Best of Books on Saturday, June 10th from 3:00-5:00pm and meet Oklahoma-born author Lydia Reeder! She will be signing copies of her book Dust Bowl Girls: The Inspiring Story of the Team that Barnstormed its Way to Basketball Glory!

About Dust Bowl Girls: At the height of the Great Depression, Sam Babb, the charismatic basketball coach of tiny Oklahoma Presbyterian College, began dreaming. Like so many others, he wanted a reason to hope. Traveling from farm to farm, he recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered them a chance at a better life: a free college education if they would come play for his basketball team, the Cardinals. Despite their fears of leaving home and the sacrifices faced by their families, the women followed Babb and his dream. He shaped the Cardinals into a formidable team, and something extraordinary began to happen: with passion for the game and heartfelt loyalty to one another and their coach, they won every game. Combining exhilarating sports writing and exceptional storytelling, Dust Bowl Girls conveys the intesity of an improbable journey to an epic showdown with the prevailing national champions, helmed by the legendary Babe Didrikson. And it captures a moment in American sports history when a visionary coach helped his young athletes achieve more than a winning season.

Lydia Reeder is the grandniece of Sam Babb, the extraordinary basketball coach featured in Dust Bowl Girls. An Oklahoma native, her roots run deep. Today, she lives in Denver with her husband and their five cats. Her outdoor adventures include hiking the long, rocky trails that wind through the mountains of Colorado. Dust Bowl Girls is her first book.

If you are unable to attend this event, call 405-340-9202 to reserve a SIGNED COPY of Dust Bowl Girls.

Please help Best of Books welcome author David Eric Tomlinson on June 10th from 1:00-2:30pm! He will be signing copies of his book The Midnight Man!
About The Midnight Man: Oklahoma, 1994. The Waco siege is over; the OJ trial isn’t. Dean Goodnight, the first Choctaw Indian employed by the Oklahoma County public defender's office, pulls a new case—the brutal murder of a once-promising basketball star. The only witness is Caleb, the five-year-old son of the prime suspect. Investigating the murder, Dean draws four strangers into his client's orbit, each of whom becomes deeply involved in the case—and in Caleb's fate…

David Eric Tomlinson was born and raised in Oklahoma. He earned an undergraduate degree in creative writing from the University of California, San Diego, and has worked as an illustrator, copywriter, art director, web designer, usability consultant, product manager, Kenpo karate instructor, stay-at-home dad, and now novelist. David lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and two daughters.
