Join sports aficionados Bill Littlefield and Glenn Stout for this presentation for the 2016 Brattleboro Literary Festival.

Bill Littlefield has been the host of Only A Game since the program began in 1993, but he wrote his first commentary for WBUR in 1984 and shortly thereafter his work began airing on NPR’s Morning Edition — where for a few years he hit second (Tuesday) in a line-up that included Frank Deford on Monday and Red Barber on Friday. A graduate of Yale University and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Bill taught English at Curry College for 39 years and served as writer-in-residence there. Bill is the author of eight books, most recently Take Me Out, a collection of sports-and-games-related verse. For Library of America, he helped edit The Top of His Game: The Best Sportswriting of W.C. Heinz, and he wrote the introduction for the anthology.

Glenn Stout has been series editor of The Best American Sports Writing since its inception and is the author and editor of more than ninety books, including Red Sox Century, Yankees Century, Nine Months at Ground Zero, The Cubs: The Complete Story of Chicago Cubs Baseball and Young Woman and the Sea, currently under development at Paramount Pictures. He was the winner of the 2012 Seymour Medal for Fenway 1912: The Birth of a Ballpark, a Championship Season, and Fenway’s Remarkable First Year. Stout served as an instructor at the Archer City Story Center and his latest book is The Selling of the Babe. He lives in Vermont.
