Overtime Book Tour – Dallas, TX
February 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
During the 2018 season John U. Bacon received unprecedented access to Jim Harbaugh’s University of Michigan football team: coaches, players, and staffers, in closed-door meetings, locker rooms, meals, and classes. Mr. Bacon’s book Overtime captures this storied program at the crossroads, as the sport’s winningest team battles to reclaim its former glory. But what if the price of success today comes at the cost of your soul? Do you pay it, or compete without compromising? Overtime delivers a riveting and revealing insider’s account of the Harbaugh era, a deeply reported human portrait of a big-time college football program.
Join us on Tuesday, February 4 as Mr. Bacon, the “poet laureate of Michigan football” (according to the New York Times’s Joe Drape) and one of the keenest observers of college football, offers a window into a legendary program and the sport itself. The evening kicks off at 6 PM at Fox and Hound (Rosemeade Pkwy, Dallas) with a basketball watch party as Michigan takes on rival Ohio State. Enjoy light bites and a cash bar while mingling with Mr. Bacon (who will be signing books) and other Michigan fans. Mr. Bacon’s talk will begin promptly after the game – we suggest arriving around 7:30 PM if you’re not able to make the watch party.
The fun doesn’t stop there! We will also be hosting a Silent Auction during the event for a signed basketball by former Michigan, now Dallas Maverick’s player, Tim Hardaway Jr. All proceeds will go to the local scholarship fund.
