This event has been canceled and will be rescheduled.

David L. Bluder will read from The Great Gamble, published by Ice Cube Press. “Relentlessly entertaining. Heart pounding. Sometimes when I didn’t want it to be. Is everybody making money from sports gambling but me? David Bluder knows a lot about sports and gambling, but he knows even more about character development. It’s about ice cold international financial crimes, but it’s also human people sharing human feelings and it’s so well written you can feel the weather change. The surprises are stellar. You’ll go back and reread a few chapters to see why you didn’t see everything coming. The only thing that was a little unsettling was, apparently, I have to figure out what all these guys do next. A great book.” —Tom Arnold, Actor, Comedian, Television Host
