During the month of February 2013, our whole community will be reading and talking about the same book through our One Book, One Columbia project. Would you like to get a sneak peek at the title of the book and be one of the first to check it out? Then please join us for our One Book Sneak Peak Reception on Tuesday, December 11, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and you'll have the opportunity to mix and mingle with other readers and literacy advocates from Richland County. We will also have book club sets ready to check out. For those who are checking off their holiday gift lists, the book will be sold as well. All attendees will receive the coveted One Book lapel button and become our official Reading Advocates!

As baseball is often used as a metaphor for life, this book explores the nature of success, failure, love, lust and jealousy through the ramifications of a missed throw. Harbach uses four changing voices and a light touch that kept us all turning pages.
