Book Group Plus Author Visit: Lydia Reeder


Lydia Reeder spent over two years conducting research into her great uncle, coach Sam Babb, for her first novel Dust Bowl Girls

At the height of the Great Depression, Sam Babb recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered them a chance at a better life... a free college education if they would play for his basketball team, the Cardinals. He shaped the Cardinals into a formidable team, and something extraordinary began to happen. The team's passion and heartfelt loyalty to one another and their coach pushed them to win every game!

“A thrilling, cinematic story. I loved every minute I spent with these bold, daring women whose remarkable journey is the stuff of American legend.” —Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author
