Join us for a Talk and Signing by author Melvin L. Jones.
Park Dreams is a poignant and majestic story about a week at the famed, Cooperstown Dreams Park. The bookgives a non-biased account of the day-to-day at the park; telling stories of camaraderie, social relations, and diversity while boys are becoming young men, and older men going back to a time in their youth which is pure and without the stress and strain of the world. There are numerous complaints about the youth of today not appreciating the “American Pastime”. “Park Dreams” is one of those books that will dispel that notion while allowing older people to reminisce, younger people to understand the nostalgia and bridge that gap between young and old.
Many star athletes have played at Cooperstown Dreams Park, including former and present Cleveland professional athletes such as: Michael Brantley, Cody Allen, Jason Kipnis, and Odell Beckham Jr.
This book is not just for baseball fans, but for everyone who have played the game, every parent who has had a child who has played the game or any person who has spent time around the game.
