THE MANNINGS: THE FALL AND RISE OF A FOOTBALL FAMILY is about the first family of quarterbacks, but is not just a football book. Every sports fan with a heartbeat will immediately recognize the names Archie, Peyton and Eli. Like Cher, Michael, Babe and a handful of others, these super-stars don't need a last name. Lars Anderson has told a warm and powerful story that is a classic for parents and children to read together. Those with a bent towards Ole Miss or the Vols, or even the Saints, Broncos, Colts or Giants will have a special relationship with this book.
THIS COPY (shown below) was signed by Lars Anderson on the title page when we launched the book. It is a new, unread signed first edition opened only for signing. Published in August, 2016 by Ballantine Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
LARS ANDERSON (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a homeboy living a stone's throw from the store. We are proud to say he previously signed The Storm and the Tide and Carlisle vs. Army for us. Lars arrived back in America from the Olympics just in time for the launch. He is one of the nation's most respected sports writers, as well as on faculty at the University of Alabama. Thank you Lars Anderson for signing our books.
