|Jackie MacMullan of The Boston Globe speaks Friday, May 12. Ms. MacMullan is the author of a new book on one of sports most fascinating individuals – Geno Auriemma, the hugely successful women’s basketball coach at the University of Connecticut. A former college basketball star, Ms. MacMullan has written what will certainly be the definitive book on the Huskies’ coach. Before joining The Globe as both an editor and sports columnist, she worked for Sports Illustrated. Her two previous books, "Bird Watching : On Playing and Coaching the Game I Love" (co-authored with basketball legend Larry Bird) and "Magic & Bird: Basketball`s Awed Couple", were critically acclaimed. Those who read Ms. MacMullan in The Globe know her interests include more than basketball, as she writes often, and brilliantly, about baseball and the Red Sox. Jackie MacMullan is one extremely engaging and talented human being, as her writing over the years in SI and The Globe have demonstrated. Now, that knowledge is shared by her growing radio and television audience. |
An autographed copy of Ms. MacMullan`s new book, "Geno : In Pursuit of Perfection", will be given to those who attend the May 12 luncheon. The price to Red Sox Nation members for both the book and baseball buffet will be $40, to non-member, $45.
