Politics and Prose, Saturday, September 20 at 1pm
The subjects of Martin’s previous biographies have ranged from Ralph Nader to Alan Greenspan to Frederick Law Olmstead. Now he profiles the regulars of Manhattan’s Pfaff’s Saloon circa 1860, whose number included Walt Whitman, Edwin Booth, and Artemus Ward.

Mark Whitaker - Cosby: His Life and Times ♦
Politics and Prose, Saturday, September 20 at 8pm
In a period when even entertainment was outspoken and angry, Bill Cosby’s humor was genial rather than edgy, and his politics steered clear of radicalism in favor of a persistent—and effective—advocacy for education and responsibility. Whitaker, former executive vice president and managing editor for CNN Worldwide and author of My long trip home, follows Cosby from his childhood in the Philadelphia projects to his stint in the Navy after dropping out of high school and on through his groundbreaking The Cosby Show, which went on the air thirty years ago.

Politics and Prose, Friday, September 26 at 7pm
Smiley’s seventeenth book, written with frequent collaborator David Ritz, is a detailed look at the final year of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life.

With the conviction of the converted—along with statistics, stories, and cultural critique—Almond, a longtime football fan who now can barely watch a game, explores the connections between violence and racism in sports and in other sectors of society and asks how an activity associated with brain damage became the iconic collegiate sport. (Melville House)

Easterbrook, ESPN.com’s “Tuesday Morning Quarterback” columnist, hails football as the #1 sport in the country, noting that the top twenty of the most watched broadcasts worldwide were all football games. But he also sees the sport’s downside, from its toll on health to its outsize chunk of college budgets. (St. Martin’s) add to cart add to cart
