Join The Timber’s Army, Powell's Books on Hawthorne and the Toffee Club for an Evening with Red Card author Ken Bensinger
Ken will read from his book Red Card: How the U.S Blew the Whistle on the World’s Biggest Sports Scandal on Thursday, August 2nd at 7:30PM at Powell's on Hawthorne. He will then join us at the Toffee Club after the reading for a chat and a pint. We hope you can join us for both events.
The Powell's event is sponsored by The Timber's Army and the 107IST (107 Independent Supporters Trust). Ken Bensinger will be joined in conversation by Todd Diskin of the 107 Independent Supporters Trust and founder of Booked! The Timbers Army Library and Literary Outreach Project.
Click here to read Ken's Reddit Q&A where he answers questions such as How much personal misfortune (threats, exclusion from pressmeetings etc) have you endured from this? And have you ever felt at danger? Interesting.......
Click here to read an interview with Ken from the18.com who writes, "Red Card is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand why FIFA evolved into such a dirty enterprise. It's a blow-by-blow, payment-by-payment account of how greed and a sense of invincibility corrupted soccer's leaders."
Red Card reads like a thriller from John Grisham with the writing flair of Oliver Sachs, Malcolm Gladwell and Moneyball's Michael Lewis. It's a perfect read for football fans.
It's going to be an amazing evening. We hope you to see you there!
Cheers, Team Toffee
