Book Of The Month: Hail Mary: The Rise and Fall of the National Women's Football League

November 2021

Fans of Netflix's GLOW, a canceled-before-its-time dramedy about sports and sisterhood, should rejoice in reading this entertaining and engaging story about a league of semi-pro female footballers—gay and straight, factory workers and mothers, beauticians and truck drivers—and their lasting legacy on the field and off. Like GLOW'S all-women pro-wrestling promotion, the National Women's Football League, which lasted from the early 70s to the mid-80s, began as a "comedy attraction" but soon morphed into a seriously special meeting ground for those who shared "a love for a game society told them they shouldn't (and couldn't) be playing." From two incredible sports journalists, Hail Mary is a glorious and galvanizing chronicle celebrating no-longer-forgotten gridiron greats.
