CA – Becoming Kareem Signing

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears at Barnes & Noble in the Grove on Tuesday, December 5th at 7:00 PM to celebrate his long awaited memoir Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court.

At one time, Lew Alcindor was just another kid from New York City with all the usual problems: He struggled with fitting in, with pleasing a strict father, and with overcoming shyness that made him feel socially awkward. But with a talent for basketball, and an unmatched team of supporters, Lew Alcindor was able to transform and to become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

From a childhood made difficult by racism and prejudice to a record-smashing career on the basketball court as an adult, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s life was packed with “coaches” who taught him right from wrong and led him on the path to greatness. His parents, coaches Jack Donahue and John Wooden, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, and many others played important roles in Abdul-Jabbar’s life and sparked him to become an activist for social change and advancement. The inspiration from those around him, and his drive to find his own path in life, are highlighted in this personal and awe-inspiring journey.

Join Kareem for the launch event for Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court. Kareem will also be signing Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court when purchased from this location 

This is a wristbanded event. A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase Becoming Kareem from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning December 5th at 9am
• Limit 1 wristband per book
• Personalization will be available
• Pictures with Kareem will be taken by our staff with your camera
• No memorabilia please

The fall convention weekend included Hollywood icons, unique photo-ops, numerous awards, haunting vendors & exhibitors, never ending lines for celebrity autographs with meet & greets, a tattoo festival, an expanded Kids Zone, and packed Special FX Makeup classes

Pete Mongelli, co-founder of Spooky Empire, shared, “Every time I passed the ticketing tables or autographs rooms, I was in awe of the never ending lines of fans filled with excitement and anticipation to be face-to-face with their heroes. Spooky Empire has created a solid family for the last 15 years and that’s what you feel at the convention. Everyone is coming together as family from the kids, to the attendees and special guests. Spooky Empire drew in an epic crowd in 2017 and we’re excited for what’s to come.” 

The event had classic icon guest appearances such as: Richard Dreyfuss fromJaws, Molly Ringwald, John Cusack and Anthony Michael Hall from Sixteen Candles, and from the American horror comedy The Lost Boys Billy Wirth, Jamison Newlander and G Tom Mac. Top panels included cast members from What We Do In The Shadows Petyr and Deacon in an unforgettable and levitating Q&A, and The Lost Boys and IT Loser’s Clubcast members Wyatt Oleff (Stanley Uris), Jaden Lieberher (Bill Denbrough), Sofia Lillis (Beverly Marsh) and Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ben Hanscom) drew in a full house. Guests also had a once in a lifetime photo opportunity with C.J. Graham in full “Jason” costume from Jason Lives and a special photo-op with Richard Dreyfuss that drew in fans with legendary memorabilia to be signed or pose in front of large shark jaws.  Pauliegon’s Pencilnecks hosted a spectacular Ghostbusters Experience with cars, props, photo-ops and look-a-likes with an identical Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters! For the Rock ‘n’ Roll fans,the weekend was unforgettable with a performance from G Tom Mac.
