Davis Miller, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Tao of Muhammad Ali, and the story My Dinner with Ali, which has been judged one of the best twenty pieces of sports writing of the 20th Century, will introduce and screen selected video segments of the new opera Approaching Ali, which is based on his life-changing, life-enlarging friendship with The Champ. The opera premiered in two sold-out, standing ovation performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. in June of this year. In addition, Mr. Miller will read a few passages from his books and will reflect on the impact of Ali on his life over the nearly four decades that he has known him. A Q & A session will follow.

The event will take place in the Muhammad Ali Center Auditorium. The schedule of events is as follows:

Light refreshments and meet and greet with Mr. Miller: 5:30-6:00pm

Program: 6:00-7:30pm
