Gelf magazine begins the season with a “Varsity Letters Baseball Night” on Thursday, April 5, at 7:30 p.m., at The Gallery at LPR, 158 Bleecker St. (between Sullivan St. and Thompson St.), NYC.
Four writers of recent baseball books will read from and talk about their work, including New York Times columnist Dan Barry (interview here), who will revisit the sport’s longest game, a 33-inning saga; Steven Goldman and Jay Jaffe (interview here) editor and co-author, respectively, of Baseball Prospectus’s new book on the crucial numbers behind the national pastime; and Glenn Stout (interview here) flashes back a century, to Fenway Park’s remarkable first year.
The event is free for those 21 and over. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are under 21 and would like to attend. The farther in advance, the better; no guarantees.) Doors open at 7, the event starts at 7:30.
