Please join Ben Bradlee, Jr. and Bob Ryan in conversation about The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams, winner of the 2013 PEN New England / Cerulli Award for Literary Excellence in Sports Writing.
In the tradition of John Updike’s famous New Yorker essay, “Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu,” Bradlee, with eloquence and grace, delivers 53 years later the definitive biography of one of the greatest athletes of the game. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, The Kid brings Ted Williams to life.
Ben Bradlee Jr., spent 25 years at the Boston Globe as a reporter and editor, overseeing as deputy managing editor, among many critically acclaimed stories, the Globe's Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
