If there was an award for 'Most Valuable Sportwriter,' I would vote for Dave Zirin. His writing combines vivid narrative, good humor...knowledge of the game, and a keen awareness of the connection between sports and the world outside. -- Howard Zinn

Dave will sign his new book (with John Carlos, Foreward by Cornell West), The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World--nominated for an NAACP Image Award!--plus his book A People's History of Sports in the US: 250 Years of Politics, Protest, People and Play
