David Gessner -- "Ultimate Glory"

David Gessner will speak about and sign his new book, Ultimate Glory, on Tuesday, June 20th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Before he made a name for himself as an acclaimed essayist and nature writer, David Gessner devoted his twenties to a cultish sport called Ultimate Frisbee. He trained for countless hours, sacrificing his body and potential career for a chance at fleeting glory without fortune or fame. Ultimate Glory is a portrait of the artist as a young ruffian. Although he eventually gives up chasing flying discs to pursue a career as a writer, he never forgets his love for this misunderstood sport.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
