Chris Lamb Signs Conspiracy of Silence and The Sound and Fury of Sarah Palin

Chris Lamb will be at Blue Bicycle Books this Sat., Aug. 25 from 1-3 pm to sign his new book Conspiracy of Silence: Sportswriters and the Long Campaign to Desegregate Baseball and his 2011 release The Sound and Fury of Sarah Palin
Conspiracy of Silence is a history of the effort to desegregate major league baseball in the 1930s and 40s, particularly the story of how various mainstream newspapers covered, or in many cases failed to cover, black players’ fight for racial equality. The Sound and Fury of Sarah Palin features cartoons from a number of Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists, words from well-known Republican commentators, and Chris Lamb’s own trademark wry humor in an analysis of Palin and what she meant for American politics.
Chris Lamb is a professor of media studies at the College of Charleston and the author of several other books, including Blackout: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Spring Training.
