    Young America's Foundation is proud to host author Dan Flynn at a book event on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Flynn will be speaking on his new book, The War on Football: Saving America's Game at 3:15 p.m. in the Governor's Room of the Omni Shoreham.

    No other sport epitomizes the fierce, hard-working, competitive American spirit better than football.  And at a time when the values of hard work, competition, and tradition are lambasted by the elites in the media and academia, even the football field isn't sacred.  In his new book, Dan Flynn discusses how football, like other cherished American institutions, is being brought down by those ruthlessly pursuing lawsuit settlements and grant money.  He'll offer his assessment on how football has actually never been safer and how we've never needed its values of manhood and American exceptionalism more than we do now.  

    This book event is open to those attending the 2013 Values Voters Summit, of which Young America's Foundation is a sponsor only of its educational portions. Those who attend the breakout session will be entered to win a free copy of the book. 

    As a graduate of Young America's Foundation programs, Flynn understands the importance of increasing the number of young people who understand and are inspired by free enterprise, traditional values, and individual freedom.  His other books include: Blue Collar Intellectuals: When the Enlightened and the Everyman Elevated America, A Conservative History of the American Left, Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas, and Why the Left Hates America.

    Katie Taran is the conference director for Young America's Foundation.
