Wednesday, August 22nd: ‘Damn Yankees’ + Free Beer (Register Now)

Damn Yankees
Museum of the City of New York (1220 Fifth Ave., Manhattan)
6:30pm
$12 in advance

Join Robert Fleder, former Executive Editor of Sports Illustrated, as he talks about Damn Yankees (Ecco, 2012), a new collection of essays he edited, which demonstrates that no one feels neutral about the Yankees! Fleder assembled a deep bench of great writers including Pete Dexter, Rou Blount, Jr., Jane Leavy, and Colum McCann, whose stories illustrate not only the team’s personalities and rivalries, but also its economics. Mr. Fleder will be joined by contributors Dan Barry, New York Times columnist and author of Bottom of the 33rd (Harper, 2011) and Bruce McCall, author of Marveltown (Farrar, Straus and Gioux, 2008). Beer courtesy of The Bronx Brewery will be served.
