Dwier Brown of Field of Dreams hosts the Ninth Annual "Futures at Fenway"

Boston 7-13-14: Dwier Brown (Field of Dreams, Dennis the Menace Strikes Again, The Guardian) hosts the Ninth Annual "Futures at Fenway" in Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, with a meet and greet with fans, signing his new book "If You Build it... A Book about Fathers, Fate and Field of Dreams" and hosts a special 25th anniversary screening of Field of Dreams at the conclusion of the game.

If You Build it... is a funny and moving memoir about Fathers, Fate and Field of Dreams. Dwier Brown played Kevin Costner's father for five minutes at the end of the movie Field of Dreams. Despite being an actor for 35 years and performing in hundreds of other films, plays and television shows, it was those five minutes that changed his life. Since the movie's release in 1989 Brown has been recognized by hundreds of fans who have told him poignant stories about their fathers and how watching the film changed their lives. Their touching stories helped Brown put into perspective his own father's unexpected death just a month before he began filming Field of Dreams. The book can be acquired here
