THE 29-29 "Tie" GAME On Tuesday, February 5, author George Colt will speak at the Hawthorne about his new book: The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968.
The book tells the story of the 1968 Harvard-Yale football game, the legendary 29-29 tie that is on nearly every list of the top ten most exciting games in college gridiron history. Although it includes a detailed description of the game itself, this is a book about more than football. It's a book about a watershed year in American history (the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, rioting at the Democratic National Convention, the Tet Offensive, increasing racial tension, not to mention sex, drugs, and rock and roll) as navigated by a group of young men and by the contrasting institutions they attended.
