January 6: Varsity Letters

Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returns on Thursday, January 6, at 7:30 p.m., with an all-NFL night, just before the playoffs begin. At this free monthly event, hosted by Gelf, N. Jeremi Duru, Anthony L. Gargano, and Chad Millman will read from and talk about their work. Duru will explain how the NFL opened up its hiring process for coaches. Gargano will provide an unvarnished look at life in the league. And Millman will trace the rise of the Steelers, even as Pittsburgh was crumbling around them.
