Great Fenway Writer Series- Leigh Montville
On Dec. 1, Montville, the legendary columnist for the Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated who has written best-selling books on Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Muhammad Ali, among others, joins GFWS moderator Gordon Edes to discuss his book, “Tall Men, Short Shorts: The 1969 NBA Finals: Wilt, Russ, Lakers, Celtics and a Very Young Sports Reporter.” Montville weaves in colorful and illuminating detail the story of how the underdog Celtics and player-coach Bill Russell, whose record of 11 NBA titles in 13 seasons marks him as the greatest winner of all-time, defeated the heavily favored Lakers of Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, interspersing personal memories of what it was like to be a 24-year-old reporter assigned to such an epic story at a time when newspapers were still king.
