Sports Night, featuring Ted Cox, Rus Bradburd, and Mike Lenehan


Here at the Book Cellar, we're not only interested in books that'll get you thinking, but also in books that inspire you to get up and move! Tonight, we're excited to have a reading for three fantastic new sports books. 1001 Days in the Bleachers collects over two decades of Ted Cox's writing for the Chicago Reader's Sports Section, capturing the extreme highs and lows of being a sports fan in Chicago. In his novel Make It, Take It, author Rus Bradburd takes us through the locker room and into minds of players on a university basketball team, grittily portraying the micro-conflicts of race and hierarchy that function within the franchise. And Mike Lenehan's Ramblers takes a fascinating look back at the 1963 Loyola Ramblers, a championship team that challenged the era's notions of race, class, and ability. So grab your best Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs, Socks, Fire, et al. jersey and head over to the BC!
