Join us for a reading from Mike’s history of the Lions, We Are Black, We Are White, on Thursday August 27th at 7pm ET on Zoom. The event is free, but we do encourage that who can to support the club with a gift (see: How to Support the Village Lions). Based on decades of interviews and observations with former and current Lions, We Are Black, We Are White is a celebration of more than three decades of New York's most offbeat rugby club. Malone has been a Village Lion since 1993 and has chronicled the club’s exploits with his infamous Tales From the B-Side series in Rugby Magazine from 1993 to 1997, and for The Villager, The Irish Times, Time Out (NY), Arena (UK) and other publications. The Lions inspired many of the characters in Malone’s novel No Never No More.
