14th & V | Langston Room | October 12, 2015 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Politics & Prose at Busboys and Poets, 14th & V, present Tom Foreman to discuss his new book My Year of Running Dangerously: A Dad, A Daughter, and a Ridiculous Plan.

Until his daughter asked him to join her in training for a marathon, Foreman, then fifty-one, with his last foot race decades behind him, had no idea he wanted to hit the trails again. But one race led to another; as he reports in this warm account of three marathons and five half-marathons, Foreman, an Emmy Award-winning CNN correspondent who has covered events including Hurricane Katrina, 9/11, and the Gulf oil spill, offers an inspiring story of father-daughter bonding, unexpected adventures, and facing the challenges of both distance and age.
