"A Game of Their Own" with Jennifer Ring
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, April 23 at 7pm
There is a national women’s baseball team in the United States. It is virtually unknown.

One of the best kept secrets in American sports: Team USA has medaled in every international competition it has played in for the past decade.

“A Game of Their Own” chronicles the largely invisible history of women in baseball. Jennifer Ring includes oral histories of eleven members of the U.S. Women’s National Team, from the moment each player picked up a bat and ball as a young girl to her selection for Team USA. Each story is unique, but they share common themes that will resonate with all baseball fans: facing skepticism and taunts from players and parents when taking the batter’s box or the pitcher’s mound, self-doubt, the unceasing pressure to switch to softball, and eventual acceptance by their baseball teammates as they prove themselves as ballplayers. The stories of these racially, culturally, and economically diverse players come alive as they recount their battles and most memorable moments playing baseball -- the joys of exceeding expectations and the pleasure of honing baseball skills and talent despite the lack of support.

Featuring exclusive interviews with players, coaches, and administrators, “A Game of Their Own” celebrates the U.S. Women’s National Team and the excellence of its remarkable players. In response to the jeer “No girls allowed!” these are powerful stories of optimism and staying true to oneself.

Jennifer Ring is a professor of political science at the University of Nevada, Reno. She is the author of “Stolen Bases: Why American Girls Don’t Play Baseball.” (Clubhouse)

Museums at Night - Discover Cowper's Summer house and all its secrets
The Cowper and Newton Museum (Olney), Saturday, May 16 at 7pm
Discover William Cowper’s Summer House and all its secrets.
Our 18thC garden originally belonged to the apothecary who lived next door to Orchard Side. After his death, Cowper was allowed the use of this former medicinal and herbal garden. Selected friends were allowed to visit him in the unique building in the centre, which he described as his ‘verse manufactory’ or ‘sulking house’ dependent on his mood. After the poet’s death admirers of his works visited this small ‘literary shrine’ and many inscribed their names and dates on the walls and ceiling, the earliest found being 1802!

Follow a lantern-lit pathway through the gardens to William Cowper’s Summer House. Enjoy a glass of wine, music and conversation, learn more about the summer house’s history and be treated to a fabulous talk by Lisa Gee on William Hayley, Cowper’s biographer and the Poet Laureate that England never had.

Entrance £6 per adult (to include wine) (CowpNewt)
