Gelf returns to The Gallery at Le Poisson Rouge to pay tribute to the Wall Street Journal's sports coverage, led by editor Sam Walker, who is leaving the section this spring to become the Journal's deputy enterprise editor. Many of the writers and editors who worked with Walker to build the WSJ's distinctive approach to daily sports coverage starting in March 2009a mix of scoops, humor, investigation, insight, obsessive quantification, deep analysis, the offbeat, and a notable lack of traditional game storieswill be taking the stage with him to read from and talk about their favorite WSJ sports work and emails from the boss.
Hosted by WSJ alum Carl Bialik
