Don McPherson & Ryan O’Callaghan — Miami Book Fair, Miami, FL

With: and

Edge of Sports’ Ryan O’Callaghan on My Life on the Line; Don McPherson on You Throw Like a Girl; and Melissa Isaacson on State: A Team, a Triumph, a Transformation in conversation with author, and editor of Akashic Books’ Edge of Sports imprint, Dave Zirin. Melissa Isaacson’s State: A Team, a Triumph, a Transformation is a compelling first-person account of what it was like to live through both traditional gender discrimination in sports and the joy of the very first days of equality in the 1970s. In You Throw Like a Girl, former Syracuse University quarterback and NFL veteran Don McPherson examines how masculinity adversely impacts women and creates many “blind spots” that hinder the healthy development of men. Ryan O’Callaghan, for six seasons a tackle with the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, writes in My Life on the Line about living as a closeted gay man in the hypermacho world of football.
