Barnstorming America - film rights optioned

Postby HistoryofWomensBasketball » Mon Mar 27, 2017 8:06 pm

Heading to Dallas for a book signing at the final four. Players who played for 7 different barnstorming teams will be on hand.

Still very early in process and nothing may come of it, but the film rights have been optioned.

Book is available on Amazon and I think on sale right now if you are interested.

Barnstorming America heading to second printing, says publisher

Morley, MO publisher Acclaim Press says that the first printing of John Molina’s book Barnstorming America—Stories From the Pioneers of Women’s Basketball has sold out and that the coffee-table book is going into its second printing.

Released late 2016, Barnstorming America chronicles the roots of women’s professional basketball beginning in the 1930s, when the earliest women’s teams took to the highways and played grueling schedules of one-night stands against teams of local men, playing by mens’ rules. Teams such as the All American Red Heads, Southern Belles, Texas Cow Girls and others proved that women could play basketball at a high level, but also demonstrated that women’s sports could be viable as a business.

Acclaim Press says sales momentum for the book has been building gradually since its release, primarily based on word of mouth. A film option for the book has been acquired by Crystal City Entertainment, which has been involved with notable recent films such as The Ides of March and Lee Daniels’ The Butler.


also has received a nice review. Book is available on Amazon
