John Feinstein 

When: Wed., Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m. 2011

John Feinstein used to be a bit of a troublemaker: He first came to wide notice with his book A Season on the Brink, which shockingly revealed Indiana Hoosiers basketball coach Bobby Knight to be a profane, intemperate bully. As a regular NPR commentator over the years, Feinstein could be relied upon to cut through the crap about the sham amateurism of the NCAA—memorably, he described a final, disillusioning experience with high school basketball prospects as a "cesspool" and resolved to be done covering it with his eyes averted from the corruption. The Duke graduate has shifted gears into golf writing; his A Good Walk Spoiled is purportedly the best-selling sports book of all time. His latest, One on One: Behind the Scenes With the Greats in the Game, is something like a compilation album of B-sides and outtakes from the famous old white men he's interviewed in his career: Knight, Jim Valvano, Mike Krzyzewski, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and—oh, yes—non-old-white-man Tiger Woods. His reading begins at 7:30 p.m. —David Fellerath
