Buzz Bissinger to Speak at Spells Writing Lab Fund-Raiser

Buzz Bissinger, journalist and author of Friday Night Lights and the soon-to-be-released Father’s Day (a book about his son, Zach, whom he wrote about for Philly Mag in 1999), will talk about “writing, fatherhood and the art of the rant” at the Loews Hotel on May 10th. The fund-raising event supports Spells Writing Lab, a nonprofit center that offers tutoring and workshops in writing to Philadelphia students. Tickets are available here, and the VIP option ($125 and up) buys you an “intimate … pre-reception with the author.”
