Relive 11 in ’11 | Left Bank Books
Thursday, April 29
Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis’ award-winning sports columnist Benjamin Hochman, who will discuss his new book, 11 in ’11: A Hometown Hero, La Russa’s Last Ride in Red, and a Miracle World Series for the St. Louis Cardinals, on their Facebook Live Page at 7 p.m. 11 in ’11 is a thoroughly reported chronicle of an unparalleled season, packed with interviews with key players, team executives, broadcasters, and more. Go inside the front office to see how this roster was constructed; relive the blistering final stretch of the regular season which saw the team winning 20 of its last 28 games; experience the palpable energy of Busch Stadium during Game 6, where Hochman watched enthralled as a fan.
Hochman will be in conversation with St. Louis native and Co-host of STL-TV’s St. Louis-themed talk show “Close Up” Angela Hochman. All you need to do to participate is log in to your personal Facebook account, go to Left Bank Books’ Facebook Live Page, and wait for the livestream to begin on the page (you may need to refresh the page periodically until the stream begins).
