"Writing: A Life" Events

 

David Wanczyk

David Wanczyk grew up a Boston Red Sox fan and once gave up 27 runs in an inning before realizing he’d never make it to Fenway Park—or varsity. He’s coped with that by writing on novel sports for Salon, Slate, Boston Globe Magazine, Texas Monthly, and publishing the first book about “Beep Baseball”: Beep: Inside the Unseen World of Baseball for the Blind. The editor of New Ohio Review and a professor at Ohio University, he lives in Athens, Ohio, with his wife, Megan, their daughter, Natalie, their son, Ben, and the family heirloom—an autographed Pedro Martinez hat.
