Dan Grunfeld

March 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Book talk, Q&A followed by a basketball clinic in the gym

In By the Grace of the Game, Dan Grun­feld, once a bas­ket­ball stand­out him­self at Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty, shares the remark­able sto­ry of his fam­i­ly, a del­i­cate­ly inter­wo­ven nar­ra­tive that doesn’t lack in heart­break yet remains as deeply nour­ish­ing as his grandmother’s Hun­gar­i­an cook­ing, so lov­ing­ly described. The true improb­a­bil­i­ty of the saga lies in the dis­cov­ery of a game that unknow­ing­ly held the pow­er to heal wounds, build bridges and tie togeth­er a frac­tured Jew­ish family.

Dan Grun­feld was a two-time Aca­d­e­m­ic All-Amer­i­can as a mem­ber of Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty’s men’s bas­ket­ball team. He played eight pro­fes­sion­al sea­sons in top leagues around the world, includ­ing a year in Ger­many, three in Spain and four in Israel, with a brief stint in the NBA for the New York Knicks. Grun­feld received his MBA from Stan­ford, and his writ­ing has appeared in out­lets includ­ing Sports Illus­trat­edHuff­in­g­ton PostJerusalem Post and SBNa­tion.
