December 2: Varsity Letters

Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returns on Thursday, December 2, at 7:30 p.m. At this monthly event in DUMBO, Brooklyn, hosted by Gelf and Jan Larsen Art, Roger Bennett and Andrew Zimbalist will read from and talk about their work. Bennett will deliver a paean to ping pong, with tales from the table. And Zimbalist will score the winners and losers in sports economics.
