Bartlesville Public Library will host award-winning author, Phil Dixon, to talk about his book “Kansas City Monarchs in our Hometown,” which chronicles the history of the Kansas City Monarchs baseball team — the longest running franchise in the history of baseball’s Negro Leagues.
The free program is set for 1:30 p.m., Sunday, in the Library’s Meeting Room A. The library is located at 601 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville.
Bartlesville is one of many stops Dixon will make on his tour to discuss the 1924 World Champion Monarchs and baseball history. He began a 90-city tour to honor the Monarchs— winners of a national title 90 years ago — but never imagined where it would take him, he says.
