In partnership with Maryland’s Association for Women in Sports Media chapter, The Shirley Povich Center for Sports Journalism will host best-selling author Jane Leavy at 4 p.m. on Dec. 5 in Knight Hall‘s Eaton Theater.

Leavy will discuss her new book “The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Created,” as well as her career.

Leavy is the author of The New York Times bestsellers “The Last Boy, Sandy Koufax: A Lefty’s Legacy” and the comic novel “Squeeze Play,” which Entertainment Weekly called “the best novel ever written about baseball.”

She was a staff writer at The Washington Post from 1979 to 1988, first in the sports section, then writing for the style section.

Pizza and refreshments will be served.
