George Allen book signing Thursday ... San Pedro, CA

Having spent his life in both the sports and political worlds, former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator George Allen – son of Hall of Fame coach George Allen – reveals what our government can learn from the greatest moments – and failures – in sports, in his book What Washington Can Learn From the World of Sports. Allen will be conducting a book signing on Friday, July 2nd from 10:00 to 11:30 am PT at Williams’ Book Store, a 101-year-old Southern California landmark.

The oldest bookstore in the Los Angeles area, Williams’ Book Store is an independent, family-owned business that has beaten all the large chain bookstores through the decades. Copies of What Washington Can Learn from the World of Sports will be available for purchase at Williams’. Please go to www.williamsbookstore.com to learn more about the Book Store.

In What Washington Can Learn From the World of Sports, Allen blends sports anecdotes—memorable, funny, and nostalgic—with the political issues we face, drawing out the principles of sports that have real world applications to our national life and politics.

Join us, and hear Allen’s great stories about the intersection of sports and politics and what we can do to make Washington work like the world of sports.
