Hey baseball fans!
A lot of you know that I recently had a baseball history introduction book published by Summer Game Books called Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers. The book came out last September in e-book form, and is now coming out in paperback, just in time for baseball season. Anyway, now that the book is finally "autographable," I've started to get some book signings set up for me by my publisher (Walter Friedman) and by my dad.
Well, last Thursday, March 26th, I did my first ever book signing at the famous Bergino Baseball Clubhouse at 67 East 11th Street in New York City, which is owned by Jay Goldberg. If you haven't been there, and you love baseball, it's a must-see place full of memorabilia, art, cool gifts, custom baseballs and much more.
I arrived at Bergino early around 5:45pm, so I had time to finish my language arts research paper. Jay said it was the first time that an author had ever done homework in the Clubhouse. By about 6:30pm, people started arriving for the 7pm event, so I started signing some books early.
Around 7:15pm, Jay sat down next to me, and did a twenty minute interview of me. Then he allowed the audience to ask questions for about another twenty minutes. Here's a link to the actual post that Bergino Baseball Clubhouse put up about the signing including the podcast they recorded. There were about 40 people sitting plus about ten more standing.
Probably one of the coolest things was seeing my book in the Clubhouse window, for sale.
The night ended around 8:30pm. By the time it was over, I had sold about 50 books, made a few new friends, and had the time of my life!! I want to really thank Jay Goldberg who gave me a chance and allowed me to come into the Clubhouse and do a signing. I will never forget that kindness or the experience itself.
I can't wait for my next book signings!! So far, I have three set up, all in New Jersey.
Here's the information, in case any of you would like to attend:
-Words, Maplewood, NJ, 4/12 @ 4pm
-Barnes & Noble, Springfield, NJ, 4/26 @ noon,
-The Teaneck Doghouse, Teaneck, NJ, 5/3 @ 5:30pm
Hope a lot of you can come to my signings. And check back soon for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
