Paul, I was just thinking. In addition to the library in New Jersey, maybe you can also come out here to Southern California and discuss this book in Compton. Here is the link to the Compton library:

Indeed, I'm sure they'd love to read the book.

I hope they do.

If the Compton Library would be interested in paying my way... maybe we can make something happen. But with what an author makes on each book sale, well, let's just say I'd have to sell a ton of books, to cover the trip...

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
