Description

Please join us for an evening of reading, discussion, and celebration with David Zirin.

n What’s My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States, sportswriter David Zirin offers a provocative and engaging look at the exhilarating—and yet often dirty—business of sports, and the inspired people who play them. With a scholar’s arsenal, an athlete’s sensibility, a sports fan’s verve, and a street fighter’s acumen, Zirin engages with the world of sports like no other sportswriter today. One part athletic interview compendium, one part history and civil rights primer, and one part big business exposé What's My Name, Fool surveys the “level” playing fields of sports, reveals hidden inequities and shows how many uneven features reflect startling trends that define our greater society.
