Talking Sports and Literature

Story Forward

Jun 22 2020 • 1 hr 4 mins

This week host Larry Rosen "sits down" via Zoom with writers and sports aficionados Kim Cross, Johnathan Evison, and Sam Burman to take a deep dive into the intersection of sports and literature. They talk process, inspiration, game plans, and just how sports - ball or no ball, major or minor league - influence and affect their art, craft, lifestyle, and literary pursuits.

They dig into sports writing, the legacy of sports in fiction, nonfiction, and journalism. Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll get a lot of love from Johnny. Kim talks about her competitive water skiing career. Sam gets into the missteps, revisionist history, and myth-building of the Michael Jordan docu-series "The Last Dance."

We wish you all well. Be thoughtful and safe out there. Look for updates on the Fest coming your way soon, and thanks for listening!
