April 18: Seven Years of Sam Walker's WSJ Sports

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 2009—a mix of scoops, humor, investigation, insight, obsessive quantification, deep analysis, the offbeat, and a notable lack of traditional game stories—will be taking the stage with him to read from and talk about their favorite WSJ sports work and emails from the boss.

Speakers include:

Rachel Bachman
David Biderman
Pia Catton
Jim Chairusmi
Jonathan Clegg
Ben Cohen
Brian Costa
Darren Everson
Geoff Foster
Matt Futterman
Jason Gay
Sara Germano
Kevin Helliker
Mike Miller
Vanessa O'Connell
Tom Perrotta
Adam Thompson
Robert Thomson
Sam Walker
...and more!
Hosted by WSJ alum Carl Bialik
