This summer has been an amazing adventure for Miami Heat super star and two-time NBA Championship winner Dwyane Wade. He is no stranger to doing battle on and off the court. Whether it’s staring down Boston Celtics power forward, Kevin Garnett, or bouncing back after knee surgery this summer, Dwyane Wade is always up for whatever challenges come his way.
This week Wade is gearing up for another important time in his life, the release of his memoir on fatherhood – “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball”. The book is scheduled to hit shelves on Sept. 4 and will sell for $26.99.
The book signing tour makes its way to South Florida on Sept. 7, at Books & Books at the Museum of Art located in downtown Ft Lauderdale, and on Sept. 9 at Books & Books in Coral Gables.
Wade has been very vocal on how important being a father is to him. He said it is the single most significant undertaking of his life. In A Father First, readers will get a glimpse of what it means to be a single father and a celebrity.
Wade’s publisher, Harper Collins said, “A Father First is a moving and triumphant memoir, Wade shares his inspiring thoughts about fathers and sons, writing poignantly about the gratifying responsibilities of being a single dad to his two sons, Zaire and Zion, while recounting his own growing up years and his memorable rise to the top echelon of professional basketball.”
Last year Wade was awarded sole custody of his children, after a long court battle with his ex-wife, who still plays an important role in the boys’ lives.
Bill Harkins, Books & Books manager said the book signing is expected to be a prime time occasion for the Museum of Art. He said event vouchers, which are the price of the book are available at the museum website, and are on a first come, first serve basis.
“Unfortunately, there will be no meet and greet with Wade, but photographs may be taken in passing, but cannot be posed.” Harkins said.
