Morgan Bryan

Georgia Southern University’s Armstrong campus is set to present Chris Bachelder on Thursday as part of the university’s Spring 2018 Visiting Writers Series.

Snowballing from one of the most influential moments in the NFL, author Chris Bachelder is recognized for his novel “The Throwback Special,” which exemplifies Washington Redskins player Joe Theismann’s leg being broken, resulting in the end of his football career.

Chris Bachelder will be providing students, guests and the community with a reading from his Terry Southern Prize-winning novel.

The event will be held in the Foxy Loxy Cafe starting at 7 p.m. The event is free for everyone.

Bachelder is one of several known authors who have been featured through the Writers Series events hosted by GS.
