An Evening With Author John Christgau

Image: 

John Christgau will read from his new book, Michael and the Whiz Kids: A Story of Basketball, Race and Suburbia in the 1960s. Michael and the Whiz Kids tells the story of a San Bruno basketball team's 1968 championship season. It is a tale of cliffhanger games and players as outsized in character as they are short in stature. But it is also a tale of the time--of counterculture, suburbia, integration, and racial brawls erupting on the court. In Christgau's deft telling, it is an absorbing, often comic story of coming of age, for coach and Whiz Kids alike. This event is sponsored by The Friends of the Belmont Library and the University of Nebraska Press.
