Bestselling Author
speaking & signing
Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, A Dream

25th Anniversary Edition

The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public. Wristbands are required for the signing and only available with the purchase of a copy of the 25th Anniversary Edition of Friday Night Lights from BookPeople. Wristbands will be available as of 9:00AM the morning of the event. 

The book that launched one of the most popular TV series of all times, Friday Night Lights, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. We’re thrilled to welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Buzz Bissinger to talk about his timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa–the winningest high school football team in Texas history. With a new afterword that not only updates the story but also offers a sure-to-be controversial assessment of the state of football today, we still have a lot to learn from this important journalist.


H. G. (Buzz) Bissinger has won the Pulitzer Prize, the Livingston Award, the National Headliner Award, and the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel for his reporting. The author of the highly acclaimed Three Nights in August, he has written for the television series NYPD Blue and is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He lives in Washington State.

Thank you for supporting Buzz Bissinger and your local independent bookstore!
