In his own words, Jon Wertheim's new book is a "love letter to tennis."
Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returned to New York on Thursday, June 4, with a night dedicated to baseball and tennis. At this free monthly event at a DUMBO art gallery, hosted by Gelf, Bob Luke, Jeff Pearlman, and Jon Wertheim read from and talked about their work, and took questions. Luke related the history of a storied Negro League team and its ties with its hometown of Baltimore and its people. Pearlman is the biographer of fallen baseball hero Roger Clemens. And Wertheim examined the most fascinating rivalry in sports, between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
