Harry J. Deitz Jr., retired editor of the Reading Eagle, will discuss his latest book and sign copies at the Wyomissing Public Library’s “Meet the Author” program on Wednesday, October 18 at 6 PM. Gentleman Jake: The success and tragedy of the Deadball Era’s greatest first baseman, is the life story of Jake Daubert, who escaped a life in the coal mines to become a two-time major league batting champion and most valuable player but died at 40 because of an undiagnosed genetic condition. He lived in Schuylkill County and was well-known in the Reading area 100 years ago. The book is available at sunburypress.com and on Amazon.
Dietz is the author of three other books: Covey: A Stone’s Throw from a Coal Mine to the Hall of Fame, Our Father’s Journey: A Path Out of Poverty, and Journal of a Caregiver: A Story of Love and Devotion
