Doesn’t it feel like ages ago when we all had Linsanity and bowed down to the Giants after they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl (again!)? Tonight, relive those warm, fuzzy memories and more when Grantland Quarterly, published by McSweeney’s, launches its third collection of the best, most insightful sports writing from, the site ESPN launched last summer with editor Bill Simmons at the helm. A quarterly that’s indispensable for the sports fan who reads Harper’s at halftime, Grantland offers stories from Chuck Klosterman, Jonah Lehrer, Katie Baker, Molly Lambert, and the always thought-provoking Kenny Powers of Eastbound & Down. For tonight’s sure-to-be-packed launch party at BookCourt, catch readings from Klosterman, Amos Barshad, Rembert Browne, and Andy Greenwald. As Powers would say, “You’re welcome.”
