Memoirist/Essayist DAVID GESSNER on Ultimate Frisbee

July 31, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

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.
