Sports are much more than just a recreational outlet for Bostonians. Sports are intricately woven into the cultural fabric of the city and reflect the Hub’s heart and soul. But, surprisingly, the city’s love affair with sports was far from preordained. Author Christopher Klein talks about Boston’s legendary sports history, offers tips to guide you through the city’s sports scene, and provides some lesser-known facts that’ll test the knowledge of even the most die-hard fan. This fun event will have something for rookies and old-timers alike.
