The Story of a High School Basketball Team, a Young Adult Book Talk & Signing
Gene Luen Yang is the author and illustrator of several books for young readers including the award-winning American Born Chinese. He will discuss and sign Dragon Hoops ($21.99 First Second), which turns the spotlight on his life, his family, and the high school where he teaches.
Gene doesn’t get sports. But at the high school where he now teaches, basketball is all anyone can talk about. The men’s varsity team, the Dragons, is having a phenomenal season that’s been decades in the making. Once Gene gets to know these young all-stars, he realizes that their story is just as thrilling as anything he’s seen on a comic book page. He knows he has to follow this epic to its end. What he doesn’t know yet is that this season is not only going to change the Dragons’s lives, but his own life as well.
