ANTHONY ERVIN & CONSTANTINE MARKIDES in Berkeley

U.S. Olympic Gold winner Anthony Ervin and co-author Constantine Markides discusss their fascinating book, Chasing Water: Elegy of an Olympian. Every four years in the Olympic cycle the surge of national interest in swimming grows, and with it a desire to be captivated by its stars. This book tells the dramatic, surprising, and sometimes provocative path that Anthony Ervin has taken to become one of those captivating Olympic heroes. Not your typical sports memoir, Chasing Water also contains arresting black-and-white drawings and a graphic story extra, as well as an inventive and mercurial narrative style that morphs chapter by chapter to reflect Ervin's restless, multifaceted life. 

This conversation will be moderated by Derek Van Rheenen, Associate Adjunct Professor and Director, Cultural Studies of Sport in Education at UC Berkeley.
