The Society for American Soccer History will host a book talk with soccer journalist Beau Dure on Friday, August 7, 2020 at 12 PM EDT.
Dure’s recent book, 2012: The Year that Saved Women’s Soccer (2020), discusses the state of women’s soccer in what he calls the “dark ages” of the early 2000s, and how the successful 2012 NWSL season anchored professional women’s soccer in the American soccersphere.
Dure has covered women’s soccer throughout his nearly 30-year journalism career, where he has written for the USA TODAY, The Guardian, FourFourTwo, and ESPN. A Society member, he has been an enthusiastic supporter of documenting and sharing American soccer stories.
