BooksNJ 2015 has ended

Ron Kaplan

In addition to working as a sports and features editor for a weekly New Jersey publication, I'm also a freelance writer, specializing in book reviews -- primarily baseball-related -- as well as pop culture. My work has appeared in such print and on-line publications as Mental Floss, Huffington Post, ForeWord Magazine, and Baseball America, among others.
My first book, "501 Books Baseball Fans Must Read Before They Die," was published by the University of Nebraska Press in 2013. My new book, The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games," is due out in early July.
I live in Montclair with my wife, Dr. Faith Krausman, a veterinarian.
