Santa Cruz Book Talk (The Away Game)

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sebastian Abbot will present his new book (The Away Game) about the largest talent search in soccer history, which has been carried out over the last decade by Qatar. Led by the scout who helped launch Lionel Messi’s career, the program has held tryouts for over 5 million boys, mostly in Africa, looking for soccer’s next superstars. The process has been over a thousand times more selective than getting into Harvard.

The event will take place at 7pm on March 21 at Bookshop Santa Cruz (1520 Pacific Ave, Santa Cruz, CA). The event is open to the public.
