Former NBA All Star launches book
Seattle, WA, September 27, 2011: “Standing Above the Crowd” is a new book by former Sonic, James Donaldson. James will be signing his book on Tuesday, September 27th at Maggiano’s in Bellevue from 4:30pm-6:30pm. There will also be a guest appearance by former Seattle SuperSonic great, Shawn Kemp, and the current Miss Washington 2011 – Brittany Henry, who will also be autographing copies.
“Standing Above the Crowd” is a book about how to Set a Game Plan to Become the Best that You Can Be. The book also explains what it is like to be a professional basketball player, and what it was like to play with some of the greatest in the game.
“You can be all you want to be and do all you set out to do with the proper attitude, game plan, goals, objective, and ‘never say die’ approach,” says Donaldson, an in-demand keynote speaker at business conferences, school assemblies and athletic award dinners.
Although he stands at 7-feet, 2-inches tall, success was not a given for Donaldson, who describes himself as a teenager as a “fat, shy, introverted kid, afraid of his own shadow.” Donaldson opened a chain of physical therapy and training clinics, became active in the community, and even ran for mayor of Seattle in 2009.
Come and enjoy some lively conversation, enjoy Maggiano’s delicious food and drinks and meet James Donaldson, Shawn Kemp and Brittany Henry on Tuesday, September 27th at 4:30pm.
If you just can’t get it on your calendar to attend, you can still pick up you autographed copy of Standing Above the Crowd at www.StandingAboveTheCrowd.com and James will autograph it personally for you.
