Dr. Amy Bass is a seasoned, award-winning writer and researcher who teaches history and women’s studies at The College of New Rochelle. Her new book, One Goal, tells the true story of the Lewiston Blue Devils, a high school soccer team that brought a long-segregated Maine town and its newly arrived Somali refugee community together on the soccer field to chase dreams of national glory. Sports Illustrated writer S.L. Price says of One Goal: “It’s the American story, just when you feared it might be fading fast, renewed.”
