Basketball star and cornerstone of the St. John’s Edge, Carl English will be releasing his memoir in St. John’s just in time for Christmas.
The official launch of Chasing a Dream: The Carl English Story, by Carl English and Blake Murphy, takes place at Chapters St. John’s on Wednesday, December 11, 2019, from 7-9pm.
Chasing a Dream is the memoir of Newfoundland basketball phenom Carl English. It’s an inspirational true story of persevering through hard work and dedication to make a dream become reality. In Carl’s case, he always dreamed of playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Although he went undrafted through all his years playing, he enjoyed the career of a lifetime playing the sport he loves. The basketball pro from small-town Newfoundland travelled overseas and crushed the European basketball circuit. He became a superstar in his own right, by playing in Europe and for the Canadian national team, and returned to his home province to a hero’s welcome.
The book will be available for purchase and English will be in attendance to sign copies and read an excerpt. There will be light refreshments. For more information, please contact Flanker Press at 709 739 4477 ext. 24.
