CANCELLED : The Real Story Behind the Ali vs. Liston Fights by Paul Gallender

We regret to inform you that this event has been CANCELLED.  We are working with the author to reschedule for the summer. 

Book Signing with Paul Gallender Wednesday, April 17th, 7pm-9pm 

The Spiral Bookcase welcomes Paul Gallender to share his biography of the extraordinary Sonny Liston: Sonny Liston – The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights. He introduces the reader to a man who, while not a saint, had a sense of fairness and depth of character that was acknowledged for the most part only by his family, friends, and children of all races

“Liston was arguably the most hated, feared and misunderstood athlete of the 20th century,” says Gallender. “Because of that, most of what the world knows about him has little basis in fact.”

During the event, Gallender will read excerpts from the book, answer audience questions, and sign copies of his book. We anticipate that this event will be well-attended. Please be aware that space is limited in the shop and attendees will be admitted on a first come, first serve basis. Books will be available to purchase at The Spiral Bookcase (pre-orders are recommended).
