Meet a Basketball Star!

Meet a Basketball Star!

What better time than March Madness to meet a basketball star? On Thur., March 3 from 4-6 p.m., the NBA store on Fifth Avenue will be hosting a book signing of “Catch A Star,” by Tamika Catchings.  Her book chronicles her difficult childhood (she struggled with both hearing loss and bullying) and triumphant career as an athlete, becoming the first woman to receive the National Civil Rights Museum Sports Legacy Award. The New Jersey-born, Texas-raised, three-time Olympic gold medalist and 10-time WNBA All-Star Catchings is also known for having founded the Catch the Stars Foundation in 2004, devoted to creating programs in literacy, fitness and mentoring for youths. She will be playing her final season as forward with the Indiana Fever this May.
