Gelf's Varsity Letters sports reading series returns on Thursday, February 3, at 7:30 p.m., at Manhattan's (Le) Poisson Rouge, with a special event ahead of our fifth anniversary. Varsity Letters founder Dan Shanoff—who will be celebrating the launch of his new news site, Quickish— and Gelf—which has been hosting the event since December 2006—will be co-hosting the event. It will feature 15 sportswriters, including Varsity Letters alumni and first-time speakers, who will take the stage in rapid-fire, three-minute installments to recall a defining moment in sports. The speakers include Sam Walker, who appeared at the first Varsity Letters in April 2006; Sally Jenkins; and Jeff Pearlman.
