Sheryl welcomes the writer and Mt. Holyoke College lecturer Martha Ackmann to the program. The award winning author of “The Mercury 13: The True Story of Thirteen Women and the Dream of Space Flight,” has turned her sights on Toni Stone, the first woman to play professional baseball on a men's team. The result: “Curveball.” It's recently been published by the Lawrence Hill Books imprint of Chicago Review Press.
