FLOW EVENT: Pitching with the Papelbons

 

     

 Enthusiastic baseball fans enjoyed a fun filled afternoon of baseball with Jon and Lauren Goode, authors of the book Pitching with the Papelbons, on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at the Nesmith Library. 

The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Windham (F.L.O.W.). 

A room-full of fans!

 

Pitching with the Papelbons follows young Jonathan, Joshua, and Jeremy Papelbon, three talented pitchers, who learn a great lesson as they embrace success.  Jon & Lauren explained where the idea for their book came from.  They read their book (geared for children ages 2-9) and held a question and answer time for the children as well as adults.  Jon & Lauren sold and signed copies of their book.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book, go to benefit C2Mission.  The  C2 Mission benefits children and families affected by Cerebral Palsy and Cystic Fibrosis in the New England area. For more information on the C2 Mission please visit C2mission.org.

 

            After the reading, the children decorated their own baseball hats as they snacked on popcorn out of a popcorn machine…. just like a sunny day at Fenway Park!   Jon and Lauren also be raffled a signed copy of their book.
