Lake Forest Book Store welcomes back Mike Conklin to discuss his new book Goal Fever!
The tiny Caribbean island nation of Dominica (pop. 73,000) has an identity problem. Often confused for the Dominican Republic, and with its banana-dependent economy shaky at best, it sets an unusual goal to make a mark on the global stage--qualify for the World Cup soccer tournament finals. Much is at stake, but success in international soccer will solve many problems for this tiny island nation that unites in the effort.
Mike Conklin is a veteran journalist, having worked at the Chicago Tribune for 35 years as a columnist, reporter and editor. He left to join the faculty at DePaul University's College of Communication and now works at Lake Forest College in the By The Lake Program in the summers.
