“My Sphere of Influence” is the first title in a planned four-book series. It includes a history of the Alpers Ranch going back to early discovery and pioneer days on through current times. The story includes Tim’s memoirs which illustrate the events and personalities that make The Ranch a special place and greatly influenced his life. Book one traces Tim’s personal timeline from 1956-1979 when he became involved in team sports.
In this hand-signed, numbered, limited edition book, Tim discusses his inspiration in life as it pertains to growing up in the California Eastern Sierra, loving basketball, and building on this love to become a NCAA Division-I College Basketball coach. The book is directed specifically toward teens and young adults in an effort to inspire them to strive for excellence. It’s also a fundrasier for local school sports programs.
Tim Alpers will be on hand at Spellbinder Bookstore in Bishop, signing his book from 4-6 pm. This time is so that local sports fans will be able to attend both the book signing and the Bronco Boosters’ Annual Dinner, which begins at 5:30pm.
