Remembering W. G. Grace a century after he passedThe first event of the London Sportswriters Festival is extremely appropriate: their first event is devoted to England’s finest ever cricketer, William Gilbert Grace. This year will mark 100 years since his death and what better way to commemorate the occasion than a celebration of his remarkable achievements. Join Richard Whitehead (Times On The Ashes) as he chairs a lively panel discussion with Richard Tomlinson, author of Amazing Grace: The Man Who Was W.G., Lawrence Booth, editor of Wisden, and Jonathan Rice, author of Wisden On Grace, as they discuss W. G., his beard, and his legacy. Howzat for a lineup?
