Keith Olbermann To Interview Jeff Katz


COOPERSTOWN – Mayor Jeff Katz will be interviewed on his new book, “Split Season:  1981 Fernandomania, The Bronx Zoo and The Strike That Saved Baseball,” on Keith Olbermann’s ESPN2 show at 5 p.m. Monday.

Katz, whose book was published Tuesday, May 19, will be in ESPN’s studios in New York at 2:45 p.m. for a pre-taping of the interview.

So far, the mayor said, the book, his second, has been very well received.  The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel included it in its “100 Books To Read This Summer,” leading the five-book baseball category.

He is also due to appear June 6-7 in Chicago at the 31st annual Printer’s Row Lit Festival, the Midwest’s largest book fair.
