Todd D. Snyder EventJoin us on Saturday, January 12th at 7:00 p.m. as Todd D. Snyder reads and discusses his book 12 Rounds in Lo's Gym: Boxing and Manhood in Appalachia. He is the associate professor of rhetoric and writing at Siena College and author of The Rhetoric of Appalachian Identity

“Snyder’s discerning eye and well-tuned ear help turn his exploration of boxing in coal country into a resonant account of work, church, masculinity, family, and more. It’s on the lowest levels of the fight world—DIY gyms, Toughman competitions, amateur cards at local venues—that the social and cultural embedding of boxing in everyday life comes most vividly alive, and Snyder introduces us to some unforgettable scenes and characters.”--Carlo Rotella, author of Cut Time: An Education at the Fights
