"No No: A Dockumentary" - special panel discussion with director Jeffrey Radice and sports agent Tom ReichPresented by Bergino Baseball Clubhouse
On an evening in June 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In all of baseball history, Dock is the only pitcher to ever claim he accomplished this feat while high on LSD. During his 12 years in the major leagues, Dock lived the expression “Black is Beautiful!” He wore curlers on the field. He stepped out of his Cadillac wearing the widest bell bottoms and the broadest collars. When he put on his uniform, he was one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 1970s. Dock was often at the forefront of controversy and was an outspoken leader of a new wave of civil rights in sports. After retiring, Dock became as outspoken about his career-spanning substance abuse issues as he had been about intolerance. He spent his last decades utilizing his brash approach as a counselor, helping other addicts in their recoveries. On the eve of its theatrical release, we’ll view limited footage from "No No: A Dockumentary." Then join in our discussion/Q&A with director Jeffrey Radice and preeminent sports agent Tom Reich.
MADISON SQUARE PARK CONSERVANCY & NEUEHOUSE TO HOST MAD. SQ. READS 2014 LITERARY SERIES - SEPTEMBER 4: VALERIA LUISELLIPresented by Madison Square Park Conservancy
Thursday, September 4 Valeria Luiselli | Novelist Valeria Luiselli was born in Mexico City and grew up in South Africa. Luiselli’s diverse background has allowed her artistic journey to stretch from a ballet libretto for the choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, performed by the New York City Ballet in Lincoln Center in 2010; a pedestrian sound installation for the Serpentine Gallery in London; and a novella in installments for workers in a juice factory in Mexico. Publishers Weekly called her recent novel, Faces in the Crowd, a "haunting debut novel. . . Luiselli plays with the idea of time and identity with grace and intuition." Her book Sidewalks, a collection of essays, was also released this year.
