Fenway Park Painting by Kemon Sermos, Somerville, Massachusetts
Baseball and writers go together like apple pie and the American flag on the 4th of July.
The Great Fenway Park Writers Series celebrates those two magical qualities, the poetry of baseball and the power of the written word – one and inseparable.
But baseball and literature are not indivisible from the society in which their special qualities are renown. A writers series worthy of its intent seeks to reflect as well the dynamic of the broader society – beyond ballparks and box scores.
The Boston Red Sox are committed to the proposition that writers and literature have a unique standing in American life and culture. The Great Fenway Park Writers Series honors that distinction.
