Relaunch of Sports’ Most Celebrated Literary Series

In light of the COVID-19 situation, the Great Fenway Park Writers Series will be hosting this event virtually.

FREE ZOOM EVENT*

AUGUST 4th, 7-8 p.m. EASTERN

SIDELINED: SPORTS, CULTURE, AND BEING A WOMAIN IN AMERICA

 

Save the date: Wednesday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. for our next Zoom event featuring “Sidelined: Sports, Culture and Being a Woman in America” by Julie DiCaro, an award-winning sports journalist and editor at Deadspin and a rare female voice on sports radio. A former attorney who has reported on professional sports for more than a decade, DiCaro has written a provocative and powerful book in which she fearlessly tackles head-on some of the most pressing issues facing women in sports today, both participants and the women who cover them: Sexism, misogyny, online harassment, sexual harassment, marginalization. At a time when so many women have found their voices in the #MeToo movement, DiCaro challenges her readers to demand a higher standard for a sports world that too often has looked the other way on gender issues that affect us all, including domestic abuse, equal pay and equal treatment.

DiCaro, a lively and evocative writer as well as polished speaker, brings passion and an insider’s knowledge to this timely and important discussion. We urge you to join us for what promises to be a thought-provoking evening for all of us.

 

The Great Fenway Park Writers Series would like to encourage you to make use of the great local bookstores in your community! For this event, we have partnered with Frugal Bookstore in Roxbury.

 

If you don’t live in Boston, you might consider looking for an independent bookstore closer to home.
