Has it been a month already? Anyway, I wanted to give NYC-based readers a heads-up to save the date for next Wednesday, October 4 for the next edition of the Varsity Letters Reading Series.
Great lineup this month, featuring:
Will Leitch, editor of Deadspin, who everyone should know and love already.
The editors of ESPN the Magazine, giving a sort of A/V presentation about images from their new book, "0:01," a collection of the back-pages of ESPN Mag.
Tom Callahan, who wrote a new biography of Johnny Unitas. If you come with a Johnny U flat-top, you get in free. Of course, everyone gets in free anyway.
If you live in NYC -- or know anyone who does -- please consider yourself invited. And tell friends and colleagues who might be interested. (Here's a special invite to Deadspin readers in NYC who want to be part of a quasi-meet-up-type night out.)
Varsity Letters Reading Series
Wednesday, October 4
Doors open: 7-7:30ish
Event starts: 8 p.m.
Happy Ending Lounge
302 Broome St.
Lower East Side
(Look for pink awning.)
And don't forget: Thursday, October 12 at 7 p.m., you can join me at the ESPN Book Club event at the Borders at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, featuring Joshua Prager, who wrote the new book "The Echoing Green," which is the definitive book about arguably the greatest moment in baseball history: The Shot Heard 'Round the World.
Last month's turnout was disappointingly modest. If you live in NYC, consider yourself personally invited!
