Dames Who Read – Mostly True
WHAT: DAMES WHO READ —
Featured book: MOSTLY TRUE: A Memoir of Family, Food and Baseball
Molly O’Neill was for ten years the food columnist for The New York Times Magazine and host of PBS Great Food. But before all of that, Molly grew up in a “regular family pursuing the American Dream in a world built for boys”.
Her father believed that baseball was his family’s destiny and aimed to spawn enough sons for an infield, so he married the tallest woman in Columbus, Ohio. Imagine his dismay when Molly was their first child. The plan prevailed as Molly was followed by five boys, one of whom actually did become a Yankees right fielder.
Perfect for a summer read, this is her story of an independent, talented and fiercely funny woman who found home runs could be hit in many fields. If you have siblings, especially brothers, you will find plenty to identify with and laugh at in this chronicle.
