February 2: Varsity Letters With Dave McKenna, Dan Steinberg

Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returns on Thursday, February 2, at 7:30 p.m., at The Gallery at LPR, as two of the nation's capital's eminent sportswriters take Manhattan. At this free monthly event, hosted by Gelf, Dave McKenna and Dan Steinberg will read from and talk about their work. McKenna was, for 26 years, the sports columnist for the Washington City Paper, a stint that ended in December after an eventful final year. And Steinberg writes the DC Sports Bog, a chronicle of the eccentric and enthralling in local sports, for the Washington Post.

UPDATE: At the event, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins, a Varsity Letters alum herself, will be moderating a Q and A discussion with McKenna and Steinberg.
