Gelf’s Varsity Letters, New York’s sports reading series, returns from our Sandy-induced hiatus on November 29 with readings about Michael Vick’s prison term, the disturbing motivational techniques of a Harvard football coach, and Lance Armstrong’s rides and fall. Seth Wickersham, writer for ESPN The Magazine and twice previously a Varsity Letters speaker, will read from and talk about pieces on former Atlanta quarterback Vick and on current Atlanta QB Matt Ryan. Writer Eric Kester will read from his memoir, That Book about Harvard: Surviving the World’s Most Famous University, One Embarrassment at a Time, which includes his experience on the Harvard football team. And Varsity Letters alumnus Bill Strickland—the veteran cycling journalist and author of Ten Points—will discuss the recent doping revelations about Lance Armstrong, subject of Strickland’s book, Tour de Lance: The Extraordinary Story of Cycling’s Most Controversial Champion.
