As we enter the 2016 baseball postseason, Hooray for Books! is excited to welcome author Natalie Dias Lorenzi for the launch of her newest novel, A Long Pitch Home. This book about cultural relocation has been called "warm, sensitive, and realistic" by Kirkus Reviews.
When Bilal's family suddenly moves to America, his father, Baba, stays behind in Pakistan. In America, Bilal embraces baseball, an unexpected new friend, and a new language. But this new way of life doesn't feel so special without Baba -- will Baba ever get to America to see Bilal pitch a game?
