NPC Headliners Book Event: "Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times"

October 11, 2018 6:30 PM

Location: Conference Rooms

Mark Leibovich - Big GameThe New York Times Magazine’s chief national correspondent Mark Leibovich has enjoyed a lengthy and successful career covering the political circus that is our nation’s capital – but behind the bylines and the campaign coverage, Leibovich harbored a dark secret: he was a born and bred New England Patriots fan… who longed to turn his critical eye on America’s other great spectacle/sport – professional football.

When his idol Tom Brady finally returned one of his many calls back in 2014, Leibovich’s low-key obsession became the focus of a “four-year odyssey” into the belly of the “big game.” On Thursday, October 11, Leibovich will share his new book “Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times,” at a National Press Club Headliners Book Event.

This event will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Club’s conference rooms, and will feature a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. There will be a cash beer bar in the room, as well as complimentary game-day snacks for attendees. Tickets are $5 for National Press Club members and $10 for the general public. When purchasing tickets for this event online, buyers will also have the option of purchasing copies of the book at check-out. To purchase tickets and copies of the book, please click here.

Books will also be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, so we kindly ask that you leave all outside books and memorabilia at home.
