Class Description

Do you always hear about the coolest literary events around town after they've already happened? Grub's got your back! We're partnering with Brookline Booksmith for the launch of beloved GrubStreet instructor Steve Almond's new book Against Football: One Fan's Reluctant Manifesto. There will be a meet-and-greet from 6:00pm - 6:45pm with Steve prior to the launch exclusively for Grub members at Brookline Booksmith. Come enjoy wine and cupcakes before Steve's reading, and avoid the line anxiety by reserving your seat in advance.

Please note: the meet-and-greet with Steve Almond will take place from 6:00pm - 6:45pm, and the reading will start at 7:00pm.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class.
