BEMIDJI — Headwaters Music and Arts will kick off its Bemidji Reads! series beginning May 16.
Professor of Sports Studies at Manhattanville College in New York and award-winning author Amy Bass and her book "One Goal: A Coach, a Team, and a Game That Brought a Divided Town Together" will be featured during the series.
Beginning May 16, several dozen free copies of "One Goal" will be available at the Bemidji Public Library. A book discussion kit and books for check-out will be available as well.
Bass will appear in Bemidji on June 17 with events sponsored by Headwaters. At 10 a.m. she will conduct a craft lecture and discussion of sports writing and writing in general at Headwaters, 519 Minnesota Ave. NW.
Bass will present a reading and discussion of her book at 7 p.m. that same evening at the Bemidji Community Theater, 316 Beltrami Ave. NW. This event is also free and open to everyone.
"Amy Bass is a frequent contributor to CNN and has covered several Olympic Games for NBC, winning an Emmy for her work in 2012," a release said. "'One Goal' was named a Best Book of 2018 by the Boston Globe and Library Journal. The book tells the story of how a high school soccer team united a town — Lewiston, Maine — and won the state tournament.
Bass brings insight and passion to a broad range of topics in her speaking and writing. Her program will be of interest to writers, sports fans, youth and the general public, the release said.
