Join local authors K.D. Mason (Killer Run) and Kathleen Lockwood (Major League Bride) as they read from and discuss their latest works here at Rye Public Library.
Kathleen Lockwood and her husband ,former Red Sox pitcher Skip Lockwood, currently live in Rye, NH. During Skip’s career in the major leagues, Kathleen spent twelve years in the company of exceptional women on six different teams as her husband was periodically traded, sold, sent down, brought up, and released. Her memoir, Major League Bride: An Inside Look at Life Outside the Ballpark, is a diary of growth, a journal of struggle, and an account of bizarrely truthful stranger-than-fiction events involving eccentric teammates.
