EVENT: "Inaugural Ballers" Zoom Q&A Thursday (12/15) at 7pm ET
Join me, '76 Olympic silver medalist Mary Anne O'Connor, and author Andrew Maraniss tomorrow night!!
Hi, friends. Sorry for the double-inbox day, but I wanted to be sure to remind you all that tomorrow night Power Plays is hosting our first virtual event in quite some time, and I hope you’ll come!!!
WHO: 1976 Olympic silver medalist in women’s basketball, Mary Anne O’Connor, and best-selling author Andrew Maraniss. (And you!)
WHAT: A chat — moderated by me, Lindsay Gibbs — about our current Power Plays Book Club selection, “Inaugural Ballers: The True Story of the First U.S. Women’s Olympic Basketball Team.” (You should definitely read the book, it’s fantastic, but I promise you will be able to enjoy the event even if you haven’t. There will not be a quiz.)
WHEN: Thursday, December 15 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
HOW: Register here and you will get the zoom link in your inbox! It only takes two seconds, I promise.
This is such a unique opportunity to chat with a legend of the game, Mary Anne O’Connor, and to learn about a pivotal time in women’s sports history from Mary Anne and Andrew. It’s going to be so much fun.
Usually, these events are only open to paid subscribers. But this one is open to everyone! (The replay will only be available to paid subscribers, though.)
Also, for paid subscribers, if you keep reading I have a treat: An edited version of an interview I did with author Andrew Maraniss about “Inaugural Ballers” on Power Plays earlier this year.
Remember, Power Plays subscriptions are currently 34% off!! Join the community, or give Power Plays as a gift this holiday season.
