Dhani Jones took over the U-M Football Twitter handle last evening for an Ask Dhani Twitterview. He's also in A2 to promote his new book and you can see him tonight if you're in town and are so inclined.
Jones, author of the new book "The Sportsman: Unexpected lessons from an Around-the-World Sports Odyssey" -- which touts his blueprint for physical and spiritual renewal through sampling the world's sports -- will appear at Barnes & Noble in Huron Village on 3225 Washtenaw Ave. on Thursday, July 7, at 7 p.m. in Ann Arbor.
