Author Talk 

On Thursday, Sept. 8 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Frank White will talk about his book, “They Played For the Love of the Game,” which recounts stories of African American ballplayers in Minnesota, from the 1870s to the 1960s, through photos, artifacts and spoken histories passed through the generations. White’s own father was one of the top catchers in the Twin Cities in his day, a fact that White did not learn until late in life. The talk will take place at the Oakdale Library, 1010 Heron Ave. N.
