George Howe Colt - The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 17, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this deft blend of sports, history, and memoir, now available in paperback, Colt, author of The Big House and Brothers, takes readers back to the legendary 1968 Harvard-Yale football game. Both teams were undefeated when they went head-to-head on the last day of the season, and Colt, a Harvard grad who was in the stands, gives a nearly play-by-play account of the tense contest. He also recaps the season, introduces the players, and ties the action on the collegiate field to the issues that were playing out nationally, from civil rights, religious freedom, and class struggle to white privilege and the Vietnam War.
