Interview with Nancy Russell

Monday, August 13, 2007.

Nancy RussellBaseball; it’s one of those magical sports that’s been written about in every genre of literature. And with Barry Bonds having broken Hank Aaron’s coveted home run record, it’s a hot topic of discussion these days.

So Long, Jackie Robinson is a fantastic young reader book by Nancy Russell that weaves an endearing story of a young English boy who moves to Montreal Quebec just in time to take a front row seat for Jackie Robinson’s rise to baseball superstardom beginning with the Montreal Royals. It’s a book that everyone can enjoy — even reluctant readers.

On this episode of Just One More Book, CBC journalist and author Nancy Russell tells us about her involvement in The Field of Broken Dreams project and her book So Long, Jackie Robinson.
