On Thursday, June 13th at 7:30pm Warwick's will host Matthew Futterman as he discusses and signs his new book, Running to the Edge: A Band of Misfits and the Guru Who Unlocked the Secrets of Speed. Matthew Futterman is Deputy Sports Editor of the New York Times. He has previously worked for The Wall Street Journal, The Philadelphia Inquirer and the Star-Ledger of New Jersey, where he was a part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News in 2005.

He grew up in Larchmont, New York, and graduated from Mamaroneck High School, Union College and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
