Susan Jung E316K-Doherty (EXTRA CREDIT) 10-13-2007 Miko Kings: An Indian Baseball Story The reading event for Miko Kings: An Indian Baseball Story took place at a small bookstore called Bookwoman. I’ve never been to a book reading or in fact, any book event before, so I didn’t know what to expect. I walked in the bookstore where a lady guided me to the back where seats were set up and people were already seated with a copy of Miko King in their hands. I felt out of place because I wasn’t a fan of the author Leanne Howe, and I definitely am not someone you would call an avid book reader. But soon enough, Leanne Howe got up from the seat in front of me and began to talk about why she started writing this book: She had a dream of a character with no hands and then the next night a dream with that character trying to catch a baseball with no hands. I thought that was really interesting because the imagery of someone without hands trying to catch a baseball with stumps was fascinating. Another thing that stuck out was that there is an underlying issue of racism in the story
