Author Jim Pranksy Book Signing Event

WHEN: 12/14/12 and 12/21/12

TIME: 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: The Book Rack, 4764 Elmore Avenue, Davenport. Iowa 52807

WHAT: Pranksy, a resident of Davenport, IA, will be available to sign copies of his book, Championship Expectations.

Mickey Baker and his teammates have experienced a rewarding and unprecedented athletic season, winning league titles in both basketball and football. As they approach the opening of the American Legion baseball season, hopes and expectations are running high for the opportunity at another championship.

These high school athletes have been teammates for years, but a serious conflict between their coach and a parent threatens to disrupt the very fiber of the team that has been built on friendship and camaraderie.

Their only hope to overcome challenges on and off the field is to band together and find a way to defeat the Victorium Raiders and Royce Rooney, the rival team's professional pitching prospect.

Championship Expectations details how character and integrity are defined for a group of young men as they attempt not only to meet the expectations of their fans, but more importantly, their own.
