Soccer & America’s Slow Embrace of Internationalism
November 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Wellesley Free Library for an evening with author Hal Phillips, who will discuss his new book, Generation Zero: Founding Fathers, Hidden Histories & The Making of Soccer in America. Phillips will specifically discuss the peculiar insularity of U.S. sporting culture, how that socio-structural oddity delayed futbol’s acceptance here, and why it continues to shape us.
A journalist and media executive living in southern Maine, Phillips was raised in Wellesley, attended the dearly departed Hunnewell School and graduated from WHS, playing soccer all the while.
