One on One with Frank Deford

Maryville Talks Books features interviews by noted authors.

When you cover sports for more than fifty years, you see a lot of changes. It's that experience that's given Emmy award and Peabody award winning Frank Deford a perspective on sports that can be duplicated by none other. This one-one-one conversation with the Sports Illustrated writer, NPR commentator and HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumble contributor is informational, entertaining and intriguing with stories about sports greats Arthur Ashe and Wilt Chamberlain as well as insight into the future of journalism and interestingly enough, the recent tattoo craze.
