New York: Gelf Magazine & Varsity Letters
I was featured in a Q & A published in Gelf Magazine. It's a lively read (I think): we talk about Red Grange, and for those of you who have heard enough about Grange this year, we also talk quite a bit about sports-writing. Click here to read the interview.
Also, Carl Bialik, a co-founder of Gelf who edits the Wall Street Journal's The Daily Fix, hosts a monthly reading series called Varsity Letters. He asked me to talk about my book so I will be speaking on Thursday at the event. Varsity Letters is held in New York at the Happy Ending Lounge.
Here are the details:
December 4: Gelf's Varsity Letters
Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returns to New York on Thursday, December 4, at 8 p.m. At this free monthly event at a Lower East Side bar, hosted by Gelf, Gary Andrew Poole, Liz Robbins, Nathaniel Friedman, Jacob Weinstein, and Jesse Einhorn will read from and talk about their work, and take questions. Poole is the author of a biography of the legendary football star Red Grange. Robbins is a New York Times sportswriter and author of a book about her city's greatest day, the marathon. And Einhorn, Friedman, and Weinstein are authors of the offbeat NBA blog Free Darko, and a book spinoff that catalogs the league's biggest and most-colorful stars.
Admission is FREE. Please spread the word to sports fans and book lovers.
