Overtime Book Tour – Naples, FL
January 16 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
John U. Bacon will be speaking about and signing his newest book, Overtime: Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines at the Crossroads of College Football.
“A brilliant look into the wild and wonderful world of U.S. college football. … One of the best insider-football books ever written.” —Douglas Brinkley
A riveting insider’s chronicle of Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh era, and a deeply reported human portrait of a big-time college football program at the crossroads.
The book will be available for personalized signing at the luncheon.
Overtime follows the Wolverine coaches, players, and staffers through the 2018 season, including Harbaugh, offensive stars Shea Patterson and Karan Higdon, NFL-ready defensive standouts Rashan Gary, Devin Bush Jr., and Chase Winovich, second-stringers striving to find their place on the team, and their parents’ reactions to it all. Bacon met with them every week during a season that saw the Wolverines ride a ten-game winning streak to #4 in the nation, then take a beating at the hands of arch-rival Ohio State, led by controversial coach Urban Meyer, Harbaugh’s foil. Overtime also previews the crucial 2019 campaign ahead.
