Meet Mike Lupica

  • September 11, 2017

The author of Lone Stars comes to Chevy Chase, MD, on Wed., Sept. 13th, at 6:30PM.


In his latest novel, acclaimed sports-writer Mike Lupica takes readers onto the football field, where the hits come fast and hard. After witnessing a few particularly scary tackles, Clay finds his love of the game tainted by fear. This fear grows when Coach Coop starts forgetting things and getting lost. Clay wonders if the decline is a result of Coach’s former pro football career, and decides to take action. Recent questions have emerged about the long-term medical effects of contact sports. Lupica contextualizes this issue in a heartfelt story about when life on the field alters life afterwards. Ages 10-13.
