Ann Cannon

Utah native Ann Cannon is a bookseller, newspaper columnist and award-winning children's author who once wrote a series of easy readers about two stupid pirates. In order to better understand her characters, Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe, Ann spent some time wearing an eye patch. What did she learn from the experience? "That it's hard to see when you wear an eye patch."  
 
Ann and her husband, Ken, have five sons, three daughters-in-law, a gorgeous grandchild, and a house full of pets, including a dog that weighs 180 pounds.

The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968 Cover Image
$18.00
ISBN: 9781501104794
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Scribner - October 8th, 2019

As the title suggests, the book is about the famous Ivy League gridiron matchup that ended in a tie. But it’s so much more. Colt does an amazing job of bringing to life the game’s players (actor Tommy Lee Jones played guard for Harvard) and coaches, as well as the social landscape of America in the late 1960’s. You don’t need to be a sports fan to enjoy The Game.
