Thursday, April 10 is baseball night at Varsity Letters at The Gallery at LPR. Grantland's Jonah Keri, a two-time Varsity Letters veteran, will read from his new book Up, Up, and Away: The Kid, the Hawk, Rock, Vladi, Pedro, le Grand Orange, Youppi!, the Crazy Business of Baseball, and the Ill-fated but Unforgettable Montreal Expos. He'll be joined by Kostya Kennedy of Sports Illustrated, author of Pete Rose: An American Dilemma; and a former Mr. Met, AJ Mass, author of Yes, It's Hot in Here: Adventures in the Weird, Woolly World of Sports Mascots.

March 13: It's Showtime!

On Thursday, March 13, Varsity Letters, New York's monthly sports reading series, makes its return to The Gallery at LPR with Jeff Pearlman, author of Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s. Pearlman is a Varsity Letters veteran, having previously spoken about Roger Clemens, the Dallas Cowboys of the '90s, and the Chicago Bears of the '80s. He'll be joined by Bleacher Report's NBA Columnist Howard Beck, who's covered Prokhorov's Nets, Isiah's Knicks, and the Kobe-Shaq Lakers.

March 3rd Non-Motivational Speaker Series: State of the Sitcom

The Non-Motivational Speaker Series returns to The Gallery at LPR with a night devoted to perhaps the most non-motivational art form out there: the sitcom. Saul Austerlitz, author of Sitcom: A History in 24 Episodes from I Love Lucy to Community will be joined by Jennifer Armstrong, who wrote Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted and has a forthcoming book about Seinfeld, as well as Slate's television critic Willa Paskin.
