Kyle Green had the opportunity to be Abigail Smithson’s sidekick and help interview New York Times Bestselling author Andrew Maraniss for the Dear Adam Silver podcast!
Andrew shared stories from Inaugural Ballers, his recent book on the birth of women’s Olympic basketball at the 1976 Summer Games, discussed writing books that are accessible to youth (and the importance of visiting schools), and reflects on being an author in the current political climate and the increased scrutiny that comes with writing about race, gender, and unequal access to sport.
Check out all of Andrew’s books, especially his new children’s book series.
