MIDDLETOWN, NJ –The public is invited to join the library’s virtual author visit with
author and historian Mark Stewart on Wednesday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m. as he discusses
his book, Garden State Greats: The Legends and Lore of Women’s Sports in New Jersey.
Fans of women’s history, New Jersey sports and women in sports will not want to miss
this opportunity learn the story of women’s sports in the Garden State, with profiles of
more than fifty game-changing athletes dating back to the 1890s. Stewart will look at
