Library 25th Anniversary Program – Jim Abbott

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Central Library with legendary Angels pitcher and author, Jim Abbott.

Jim Abbott, legendary Angels pitcher, author of New York Times Bestselling book, Imperfect: An Improbable Life, Newport Beach resident and Library patron.

Abbott, who remarkably overcame the challenge of being born without a right hand to fulfill his dreams of playing baseball at the highest level, delivers a message championing adaptability, determination, and perseverance. That message should resonate with the audience of library supporters, who in 1994 worked hard to make their dream of a Central Library come true.

Free admission. First-come, first-served seating, limited by room capacity.
