On Thursday night, Gelf Magazine will be hosting its fifth anniversary Varsity Letters event in NYC.
For those not in the know, Varsity Letters is a fantastic, fantastic, fantastic monthly gathering of sports writers, sports readers, sports media types. Usually those with recently released books talk for a few minutes, answer some questions, then chat and chill and whatever. I don’t attend nearly enough, because I really do love this sort of thing … a celebration of sports journalism and all.
Anyhow, the fifth-anniversary gala looks like it’s gonna be a good one. A bunch of writers (myself included—yawn) are gonna talk for three minutes each on some sort of defining sports moment. Among those attending are Emma Span (great writer), Joe Drape, Will Leitch, Amy K. Nelson, Chuck Klosterman, etc … etc.
It starts at 7:30 pm at Le Poisson Rouge in the West Village.
