Come spend an evening with author, Glenn Stout, at the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center, Thursday March 23, 2017 at 7pm.
Glenn is a Hilliard native and has gone on to achieve great success as an author and editor. Glenn will share stories of his life and career as a writer.
Glenn has written, ghosted or edited over 90 books, consulted on a variety of editorial projects with hundreds of writers, and is a respected editor and workshop teacher of narrative journalism and writing consultant.
His book include last year’s The Selling of the Babe: The Deal That Changed Baseball and Created a Legend, Yankees Century (Book Magazine’s one of the five Best Sports Books of 2002), and Ted Williams: A Portrait in Words and Pictures (A New York Times Notable Book). A feature film based on his book Young Woman and the Sea: How Trudy Ederle Conquered the English Channel and Inspired the World, is currently under development at Paramount Studios.
Glenn also writes a monthly column for Boston Baseball, served as Baseball analyst for WBUR-FM and has published in publications such as The New York Observer, ESPN.com, The Sporing News, Sports Illustrated, as well as numerous television and radio appearances on NPR, HBO, CNN, ESPN, and other outlets.
Glenn lives on an exclave in extreme northwestern Vermont on Lake Champlain and can’t reach the lower 47 without crossing a bridge or using a boat. Good thing, because he is half-Newfoundlander and in addition to being a Hilliard guy, he now maintains dual citizenship with the US and Canada.
Admission is free.
