book cover and linkCelebrate National Humor Month with a visit from author Chris Bachelder. His moving and comedic novel, The Throwback Special, was a 2016 National Book Award Finalist and winner of the Paris Review’s Terry Southern Prize for Humor. With wit and great empathy, Bachelder tells the story of 22 men who gather every fall to painstakingly reenact what ESPN called “the most shocking play in NFL history.”
