Laman Library's exhibit "Linedrives and Lipstick: The Untold Story of Women’s Baseball" isn't about art, but I'm not letting that stop me from posting here the library's event tomorrow in conjunction with that exhibit: First, a showing of "A League of Their Own" at 1 p.m., and when that's through, a panel discussion with three women who played in the American Girls Professional Baseball League: Sue Kidd of Choctaw, who makes an appearance in the movie and was a pitcher and first baseman in the late '40s and early '50s; Mary Lou “Studnicka” Caden, a pitcher and second baseman from Chicago who now resides in Arkansas; and Delores “Dolly” Brumfield White of Arkadelphia.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 758-1720 or visit
