Author Signing with Michael Snarr (Utah Jazz)

Here's the inside story of how a top US sports franchise functions, how one man brought it to Utah against the advice of the NBA, how another man and his family gave it new life, passionately embracing the team, making countless financial and personal sacrifices throughout its history, how its general managers, coaches, and players rallied behind the exuberance of a state full of sports fans, and how a last-place sports property became a model of success, surprising most sports business experts and the entire front office of the NBA along the way. For over 28 years, Michael Snarr worked in the front office of the Utah Jazz and watched as all of these fascinating stories, plots, and subplots unfolded. Balancing the history of the team from the time it re-rooted itself in Utah, Snarr also tells us about the business of sports marketing, how it all came together, grew, and how some extremely remarkable and committed individuals on the team and business side achieved what few people thought possible, especially in one of the smallest cities in the NBA. This is a story of success, of overcoming failure year after year, and of beating the odds to achieve more than expected. The final score is just a footnote to a much greater and much more inspiring story: the story of the Utah Jazz during the golden era of Stockton to Malone. Join us Friday night, December 7th, as we welcome Michael Snarr to The Printed Garden for an evening of behind the scenes stories about the Utah Jazz. He'll be reading from his new book, Long Shots and Layups: Memories and Stories from the Golden Era of the Utah Jazz, answering questions, and signing. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.
