Brecksville Branch

Meeting Room (100)

Local author Ruth Hanford Morhard will visit to discuss her new book, Mrs. Morhard and the Boys.

Meet Ruth Hanford Morhard, author of Mrs. Morhard and the Boys. In this inspiring biography, Ruth tells the true story of her mother-in-law, Josephine Morhard, who established the first boys’ baseball league in America. The devoted single mother created the community activity in the depths of the Great Depression to help her son overcome the trauma of his early childhood. Beyond all expectations, the project was backed by the Cleveland Indians and later inspired the creation of the American Little League.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac’s Backs – Books on Coventry.  Registration required.
