Brookline Booksmith hosts DAVID GESSNER as he reads from his memoir Ultimate Glory: Frisbee, Obsession, and My Wild Youth.
Before his rise as an acclaimed essayist and nature writer, GESSNER devoted his 20’s to the cult-ish sport of Ultimate Frisbee. Sacrificing his body and potential career, he spent countless hours in pursuit of fleeting glory. Ultimate Glory is a portrait of the artist as a young ruffian.
This event is not ticketed.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
