The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death

What happens when a casual card player gets a seat in the World Series of Poker as part of a journalistic assignment for Grantland magazine? If it's award-winning novelist and satiric genius Colson Whitehead, what you get is an inside look at the world of poker that is about so much more than just the game. Join us for a reading and signing of his new book to meet Colson himself and experience his take on life's games of chance through self-mockery, social satire and philosophizing first-hand.
