Robert Gordon signs RESPECT YOURSELF
Square Books, Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 6pm
The story of Stax Records unfolds like a Greek tragedy. A white brother and sister build a monument to racial harmony in blighted south Memphis during the civil rights movement. Their success soon pits the siblings against each other, and the brother abandons his sister for a visionary African-American partner. Under integrated leadership, Stax explodes as a national player until, Icarus-like, the heights they achieve result in their tragic demise. They fall, losing everything, and the sanctuary they created is torn to the ground. A generation later, Stax is rebuilt brick by brick and is once again transforming disenfranchised youth into stellar young musicians.
Set in the world of 1960s and ‘70s soul music, Respect yourself is a character-driven story of racial integration, and then of black power and economic independence. It’s about music and musicians—Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, the Staple Singers, and Booker T. and the M.G.’s, Stax’s interracial house band. It’s about a small independent company’s struggle to survive in an increasingly conglomerate-oriented world. And always at the center of the story is Memphis, Tennessee, an explosive city struggling through volatile years. Told by one of our leading music chroniclers, Respect yourself will be the book to own about one of our most treasured cultural institutions and the city that created it. About the Author
Robert Gordon has been writing about Memphis music and history for thirty years and is the author of It Came From Memphis, Can’t Be Satisfied, The King on the Road, and The Elvis Treasures. He won a Grammy in 2011 for his liner notes to the Big Star box set Keep an Eye on the Sky. His film work includes producing and directing the documentary Respect yourself: The Stax Records Story for PBS’s Great Performances. Gordon lives in Memphis.

Book Signing w/Dallas Green, Robert Gordon & Paul Kurtz
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 11am
Phillies Father's Day Event With
Dallas Green, Robert Gordon, Alan Maimon & Paul Kurtz
Saturday June 15th @ 11:00am
Discussion & Book Signing
Philadelphia Phillies fans will have the opportunity to meet 1980 World Series champion manager Dallas Green at a book signing he will conduct in Doylestown, Pa., on Saturday, June 15 starting at 11:00 AM ET. Green and co-author Alan Maimon will signing the new book The Mouth That Roared: My Six Outspoken Decades in Baseball. The Mouth That Roared
From profanity-laced clubhouse tirades and outspoken opinions on the state of the game to tears at an emotional funeral for his murdered granddaughter, Dallas Green tells his story for the first time in this autobiography. In his nearly 60 years in baseball as a pitcher; manager of three franchises, including both New York squads, the Mets and Yankees; general manager; and executive, Dallas Green has never minced words or shied away from making enemies. Though many bristled at his gruff style, nobody could argue with the result of his leadership: as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, he led the team to a World Series championship in 1980 and as general manger of the Chicago Cubs, he pulled off one of the most lopsided trades in the history of the sport by dealing journeyman Ivan DeJesus to the Phillies in exchange for Larry Bowa and future Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg. This larger-than-life baseball personality shares insights from the mound, the dugout, and the front office as well as anecdotes of some of the game’s biggest stars and encounters with the press, player agents, and the unions. Dallas Green also shares his feelings about his granddaughter, Christina-Taylor Green, who was shot and killed by a deranged stalker in Tucson, Arizona, during an assassination attempt on the life of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Knowing that the loss of his beloved granddaughter has irrevocably changed him, Green discusses how, in the wake of her death, baseball became a coping mechanism for him. About the Authors:
Dallas Green is a senior advisor to the general manager of the Philadelphia Phillies Major League Baseball team, and a former professional baseball pitcher and manager of the Phillies, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets. He lives in Conowingo, Maryland.
Alan Maimon is an award-winning journalist who has worked with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Louisville Courier-Journal and the New York Times. He is the author of Shane Victorino: The Flyin' Hawaiian. He lives in Las Vegas. Then Bowa Said To Schmidt The ultimate reference book for any “Phillie phanatic,” this book provides a behind-the-scenes peek into the private world of the players, managers, broadcasters, and executives, taking readers into the clubhouse and onto the field. Author Robert Gordon takes fans inside the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies’ run to the World Series, when first baseman John Kruk once told a fan, “I ain’t an athlete, lady, I’m a baseball player;” back to 1980, when Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, and Larry Bowa delivered the team's first World Series title; and to 2008, when a new generation experienced the ecstasy of a World Series win. Written for every fan who follows the Phillies, this unique book captures the memories and great stories from more than a century of the team’s history. About the Author: Robert Gordon is the author of eight sports books, including Legends of the Philadelphia Phillies; More Than Beards, Bellies, and Biceps: The Story of the 1993 Phillies; and Philadelphia Phillies: Memorable Stories of Phillies Baseball. He lives in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. 162-0: Imagine a Phillies Perfect Season 162-0: Imagine a Phillies Perfect Season imagines that season by identifying the most memorable victory in Philadelphia history on every single day of the baseball calendar season, from late March to late October. Ranging from games with incredible historical significance and individual achievement to those with high drama and high stakes, this book imagines the impossible: a blemish-free Phillies season. Evocative photos, original quotes, thorough research, and engaging prose and analysis all highlight 162-0.
