To compliment Frank’s guest post today, we’re featuring news about a charitable endeavour he’s taking part in.
Frank Nappi, the author of “The Legend of Mickey Tussler” and “Sophomore Campaign,” is donating part of the proceeds from the books to Best Buddies International.
In a blog, Nappi said, “In an effort to support greater autism advocacy and awareness, I am pleased to announce that with the sale of each paperback copy of The Legend of Mickey Tussler or Sophomore Campaign between Friday, July 6 and Friday, July 27 on Amazon.com, I will donate a portion of the proceeds to Best Buddies International – a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
The Mickey Tussler series chronicles the coming of age of a young pitching phenom with autism on a minor league baseball team during the 1940s.
