Shipwrecked Book Talk, with Jon Wells


At Tacoma Public Library, Olympic Room, 1102 Tacoma Ave S, Tacoma

Join author Jon Wells as he talks about his new book Shipwrecked: A People's History of the Seattle Mariners. Jon Wells is a baseball writer who has covered the Seattle Mariners for over 15 years. Wells asserts that the reasons the Mariners haven't reached the World Series are poor mangement and short-sighted ownership, despite the fact that they have three first-ballot Hall of Fame players. He details every mis-step in the team's 35 year history and kindles a hope that General Manager Jack Zduriencik will bring enough young talent to make them a contender. Part of Tacoma Reads Together.
