Pickleball is Life: Book Talk

December 7 @ 6:00 pm

Local author Erin McHugh will speak about all things pickleball on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 6 p.m. Her latest book, “Pickleball Is Life: The Complete Guide to Feeding Your Obsession,” is the first book of its kind to celebrate the world of pickleball. It takes readers from the sport’s quirky origins to its modern-day cult following. Along the way, visual info graphs and illustrations share even more pickleball knowledge, including etiquette tips, a DIY court, obscure rules, and pointers for (good-natured) trash talk. Time magazine named it one of 10 Perfect Gifts for Pickleball Lovers in their The Best of Culture 2022. It’s a great guide for a seasoned pickleball player or someone new to the sport. A book signing will follow.

Erin McHugh is a former publishing industry executive and the author of many books on humor, inspiration, history, and more.
