3 Teams, 2 Olympics…1 Sportswriter

Do you like sports? Do you love Chicago sports? On July 28th, Chicago Tribune beat writer K.C. Johnson will share fascinating, behind-the-scenes stories about his career covering the Chicago Bulls, Bears, and Blackhawks, as well as both the Beijing and London Olympics. Johnson has covered many athletes over the years, including Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose, and Wayne Gretzky. There will be a question and answer period following his presentation.
