Since 1995, the Texas Book Festival has connected Texas authors with readers through literary panels and readings, book signings, demonstrations, live music, family-fun and local eats. This year at the festival, Germanic Studies Professor John Hoberman will present his third book on the social impacts of anabolic steroids, Dopers in Uniform: The Hidden World of Police on Steroids.

The presentation will begin at 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Texas Capitol Extension Room E2.012.

His newest book follows two previous works on the topic, including Mortal Engines (1992), which examines the sports world; and Testosterone Dreams (2005), which looks at the medical world. We had the chance to chat with Dr. Hoberman about his newest title and the research behind it.
