About the Buzz Bissinger Interview

I am Buzz Bissinger, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of five books, including the New York Times bestseller Friday Night Lights, the classic that inspired the acclaimed movie and television series. I’m celebrating the 25th anniversary of the book with a new edition. Fans will enjoy the afterword in which I return to Texas for updates on your favorite characters like Mike Winchell, Boobie Miles, Brian Chavez, Jerrod McDougal, Ivory Christian, and Don Billingsley.

I’m also a longtime contributing editor for Vanity Fair and my writing has appeared in other outlets such as the New York Times, the New Republic, and the Daily Beast. I teach at the University of Pennsylvania and split my time between Philadelphia and the Pacific Northwest.

I’ll be answering your questions live starting at 2:00pmET.
