David A. Kelly, author of the Ballpark Mysteries series, joins us for a Meet-and-Greet with his latest book, Ballpark Mysteries: The Black Cat Change-Up. No registration required for this event, so don't hesitate to come any time between 4–5pm to say hi! 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK  

The Black Cat Change-Up is the 19th team book in the Ballpark Mysteries series and finds Mike and Kate trying to stop the ghost of a black cat from a famous 1969 game from haunting an important Mets/Cubs ball game! Will they solve the spooky situation before it brings down the Mets?

The Black Cat Change-Up is ideal for girls and boys in elementary school who love mystery, adventure, real-life situations, or sports. Like the author's other Ballpark Mysteries books, it includes some fun facts in the Dugout Notes section at the back of the book (did you know that the Mets stadium is the only one without yellow foul poles? Instead, the Mets have orange foul-poles!).
