The biggest football game of the year is coming to the biggest Jewish city in the nation. (OK, it's in Jersey, but that still counts.) And in the run-up to the Super Bowl, Tablet Magazine and Varsity Letters bring together two authors renowned for their writing on both football and many things Jewish. We're calling it "Pigskin Is Kosher." Rich Cohen is the author of the new best-seller Monsters: The 1985 Chicago Bears and the Wild Heart of Football, as well as Israel Is Real, Tough Jews, and The Avengers, among other titles. In Samuel G. Freedman's latest book, Breaking the Line, he writes about the world of black college football in the late 1960s and how it shaped the game as we know it today. A religion columnist for the New York Times, Freedman is the author of books including Jew Vs Jew. Longtime friends and fellow authors, they'll punt, pass and kick their way through an evening of football talk moderated by Marc Tracy of The New Republic. "Pigskin Is Kosher" will be held at 7:30 PM on Tues., Jan. 28, at The Gallery at LPR (158 Bleeker St, between Sullivan and Thompson). Admission is free and books will be available for purchase.
