Carmichael’s Bookstore – Book Signing with Katya Cengel
Carmichael’s will host former Courier-Journal reporter Katya Cengel for a signing of her new book Bluegrass Baseball : A Year in the Minor League Life.

Cengel takes you behind the scenes of minor league baseball by following four Kentucky teams for a season. From the families who welcome players into their homes for the season in Florence to the athletes who have chased a dream all the way down to independent baseball, Bluegrass Baseball highlights what goes into making a great game and the hope and heartache that keeps them coming back to the ballpark night after night.
