Squawkin’ Sports Hosted by Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth
Featuring Harvey Araton, author of Our Last Season: A Writer, A Fan, A Friendship
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this installment, Sauer and Roth chat with distinguished sports journalist Harvey Araton on his new book, Our Last Season. Araton is one of New York’s – and the nation’s – best-known sports journalists, having covered thousands of Knicks games over the course of a long and distinguished career. But the person at the heart of Our Last Season, Michelle Musler, is largely anonymous – except, that is, to the players, coaches, and writers who have passed through Madison Square Garden, where she held season tickets behind the Knicks bench for 45 years. The Garden was her second home – and the place where an extraordinary friendship between fan and sportswriter was forged. Chock-full of anecdotes from behind the scenes and cameos from Knicks legends, the story of Harvey and Michelle’s nearly four decades of friendship is a delight for basketball fans. But at its core, Our Last Season is a book for all of us, offering a poignant and inspiring message about how to live with passion, commitment, and optimism.
