Tonight in NYC: Varsity Letters!
Wahl! Thompson! Weber! Free!

Tonight in NYC, a must-attend event for sports fans: Varsity Letters is featuring three astounding good writers:

Wright Thompson, who I have long argued was the single-best long-form sportswriter working today.

Grant Wahl, a former colleague of mine when I was at SI, whose work is consistently remarkable and whose new book "Beckham Experiment" is a must-read for your fan literacy about soccer.

Bruce Weber, whose phenomenal book about umpiring is the definitive one about the job and, if you care about baseball, a must-have.

That's three heavyweights in one room, tonight. And it's FREE. Get out to Brooklyn!
