Athletes, coaches, fans, and people merely aware that sports exist will want to come to the library on Wednesday, April 17, at 6 p.m. when Angela Adler, Ph.D., will explore how sports shape society and society shapes sports. Attendees will have the opportunity to identify how they’d like sports to be in the future and what they can do to help that happen.
