Sports writer Mirin Fader wrote a book on Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks titled “Giannis: The Improbable Rise of an NBA MVP” – named before that incredible climb that Giannis used to block a shot in Game 4 on Wednesday night! – and Boswell Book Co. of Milwaukee is hosting a virtual event with the author.
The book is expected to arrive in stores on August 10.
Fader – a writer for The Ringer who has also written for Bleacher Report and has been featured in the Best American Sports Writing book series – will be in conversation with Chris Herring, senior writer for Sports Illustrated, on publication day, Tuesday August. 10, at 7 p.m.
Herring is the author of “Blood in the Garden” and has covered the NBA for ESPN, FiveThirtyEight, and The Wall Street Journal.
“Mirin Fader gives readers a magnificent portrayal of one of the most unique talents to ever play professional basketball,” enthuses journalist Jemele Hill.
“But Giannis is more than the full story of a one-time athlete in a generation. It’s the story of how the American promise intersects iron will and heartwarming vulnerability.”
The book tells the story of Giannis who overcame immense obstacles to become the kind of easy-going and inspiring player who plays at the highest level on the pitch, can joke about having a “ring” and is a symbol of hope for many around the world. .
