RSVP required, including Premier Pass holders. Seating is limited.
Moderated by Ben Hochman, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, with introductions by Bill DeWitt III
Kodner has followed Cardinals baseball since he was a child, collecting memorabilia and researching the team’s history, not only as a fan but also as a professional graphic artist. He has spent over 30 years of his career as a creative consultant to the St. Louis Cardinals. For his most recent book, St. Louis Cardinals Uniforms and Logos, An Illustrated History, Kodner and his co-authors worked closely with the Cardinals and team president Bill DeWitt III. Kodner’s son and co-author, Oliver, spent countless hours authenticating each uniform kit and logo for every season featured throughout the book.
Baseball journalist Howard Megdal takes fans behind the scenes and off the field, interviewing dozens of key players within the Cardinals organization, including owner Bill DeWitt Jr. The result is The Cardinals Way, an in-depth, fascinating story about a consistently good franchise, the business of sports in the twenty-first century and a team that has learned how to level the playing field, turning in season after successful season. Megdal lives in New York with his wife and two daughters. This is his fourth book on baseball.
Sponsored by Judith & Ted Isaacs, Howard N. Lesser, S. M. Wilson & Co.
