Amy Bass takes a selfie with, 2016 Lewiston High School graduates, from left, Maulid Abdow, Ridwan Ali and Abdiaziz Shaleh, before the graduation ceremony. The graduates were players on the 2015 LHS soccer team Bass featured in her book, “One Goal: A Coach, a Team, and the Game That Brought a Divided Town Together.” The book tells the story of how the longtime Lewiston community and its newly arrived Somali immigrants came together on the soccer field to chase dreams of national glory. Bass, a professor, journalist and Bates College graduate, will speak about and read from the book at the Lewiston Public Library at 6 p.m. Monday, March 12. The free, public program will also include a book sale and signing.
