Join us for a meet & greet author signing with Connecticut author & historian Tony Renzoni.  He will be appearing in store and signing copies of his newest book, Connecticut Softball Legend Joan Joyce.

Joan Joyce will always be known as the unbeatable pitcher for the Raybestos Brakettes and the Connecticut Falcons, whose numerous career records–including an incredible 150 no-hitters and 50 perfect games–made her the best in the game. However, she was also one of the most gifted athletes the state has ever produced, as she also set records in basketball and later went on to a stellar career in the LPGA. A true pioneer of women’s sports, Joan is currently the head softball coach at Florida Atlantic University. Join author Tony Renzoni as he profiles the multifaceted career of one of the country’s greatest athletes. 

Renzoni has written another flawless and crucial piece of Connecticut history.  There will also be copies available of his first book, Connecticut Rock ‘N Roll:  A History.  There will be a limited number of signed pictures of Joan Joyce with a purchase of the book, provided by the author.  The book signing will take place at Barnes & Noble Booksellers at 235 Union Street from 1PM-3PM on Sunday, August 18.  Contact the store at 2037597125 to reserve your copy.
