An Evening with Naismith: Artifacts of a KU Legend

Join us for a rare opportunity to view and hold artifacts from KU's University Archives relating to the life and legacy of James Naismith. Former KU Basketball coach Ted Owens will also attend. He will share stories from his time at KU, offer his thoughts on this year's team and answer questions about his book "At the Hang-up: Seeking Your Purpose, Running Your Race, Finishing Strong". Copies of the book will be available for $25 (cash or check only), and Coach Owens will sign copies at the event. There is no cost to attend, but please register using the form at the web address below.
