Location
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

In his new book, Spitting in the Soup: Inside the Dirty Game of Doping in Sports, UC San Diego alumnus and sports journalist Mark Johnson traces the doping culture in professional sports, from the early days when pills meant progress, to the current day, when athletes are vilified for the use of performance-enhancing drugs. In his book, Johnson, who has covered cycling as a writer and photographer since the 1980s, explores the complex relationships that underlie elite sports culture. A reception and book signing will follow the talk. Copies of the book will be available for purchase from the UC San Diego Bookstore.

Join us for a discussion and book signing with the author:
