Best of Bacon Book Tour – UM Club of Greater Chicago Annual Meeting

May 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for the UMCGC’s 2018 Annual Meeting. This year’s guest speaker will be New York Times best-selling author John U. Bacon. He will be talking about his new book, The Best of Bacon: Select Cuts. The book presents both new and familiar stories, all centered on sports in his home state of Michigan. Best known for his acclaimed books on college football, Bacon’s writing has been praised for going beyond traditional Xs and Os sports reporting. True to that reputation, this collection showcases personal, behind-the-scenes stories of players, coaches, and even fans. Many of these stories are connected to specific moments in time-a great season, the passing of a legendary broadcaster, or a star player’s daily grind before a big game-and will immediately transport readers to some of the highs (and lows) of their own sports memories. Light hors d’oeuvres and drinks begin at 6:00; our program begins at 6:30 p.m.
