Wait Till Next Year by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Wait Till Next Year

Renowned historian Doris Kearns Goodwin writes of her childhood and beloved Brooklyn Dodgers in this charming memoir entitled Wait Till Next Year.  The beauty of this little book, is that it presents a slice of Americana from not only a historical perspective, but a social and personal perspective as well.

I’m not a baseball fan, but you don’t have to be to enjoy this book.  It’s not difficult to understand how hopes and dreams and relationships can be built within the context of a team you claim as your own.  There’s a beautiful message within the author’s past, that connects her family to the ever-striving Dodgers:  don’t dwell on the past, keep persevering and if you don’t succeed this year – there’s always next year.
