Whittemore to host author of Fenway Park book


NAUGATUCK — The Whittemore Library will host a talk and book signing by author Harvey Frommer Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Frommer is author of “Remembering Fenway Park: A Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Boston Red Sox.”

Built by Red Sox owner John I. Taylor, Fenway Park opened in the spring of 1912, making it the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Remembering Fenway Park documents the stadium’s entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a collection of historical photographs, and first-person reminiscences.

The program is free and open to the public. The first 70 people at the event will receive a small gift. The Whittemore Library is located at 243 Church St. in Naugatuck. For more information, call the library at (203) 729-4591.
