Jay Jennings tonight at Clinton School

Local journalist Jay Jennings is at the Clinton School tonight talking about his much-recommended new book, "Carry the Rock: Race, Football and the Soul of an American City."

Times columnist Graham Gordy wrote glowingly about the book last week.

Where "Friday Night Lights" is good reportage that reads like a novel, "Carry The Rock" is more like a briskly-paced sociology book. Jennings deserves a broad audience with this effort; whether he gets one or not doesn't change the fact that he has told a more absorbing, elaborate and haunting story than some simple season-on-the-brink account.
