What?? Books at Giants Fanfest

I went to San Francisco Giants Fan Fest and guess what-I ended up with a couple of autographed books. Huh???  The Giants were nice enough to let a couple of local authors sell their books at Fan Fest and of course I had to get the books and get them signed.

The first one I got is called "Getaway Day" by Ken White. It is fiction with a huge touch of reality in it. It is about the relationship of a child and his dying father and trying to make his father's wish come true. It also is a look at Modesto in 1962. White does a great job in taking the events of the three-day rain delay in the 1962 World Series between the New York Yankees and the San Francisco Giants and weaving through the book:

The second one is "Instant Baseball" by Brad Mangin. The book is based on the photos of Sports Illustrated photographer Mangin. It is his journey of the 2012 season on Instagram. He took all the photos on his I-Phone 4S and they are truly wonderful photos:

This proves that you will never know where you can get books.
