The Cary Memorial Library in Wayne and The Tribune bookstore in Norway will each be hosting Amy Bass, author of “One Goal: A Coach, A Team, and the Game That Brought a Divided Town Together,” for a meet-and-greet and book signing. She will be at The Tribune, 430 Main St., Norway, from 1 to 3 p.m. and at Cary Memorial Library, 17 Old Winthrop Road, Wayne, at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 15.

As Bob Costas notes, “Amy Bass tells a story that encompasses many of the things people love about sports, but also epitomizes many of the reasons sports matter.” Told in the tradition of “Saturday Night Lights,” she describes a town bristling with racial tension where soccer — and an a charismatic coach — united Somali refugees and longtime residents in a common quest to become state champion.

Copies of the book will be available for signing and purchase. An informal reception will follow. Seating at the library will be first come first served, and is fully accessible. FMI 685-3612. The Tribune can be reached by calling 739-6200.
