GA – Little Shaq Signing

00000000_ga-shaq

NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal appears at First Baptist Church on Saturday April 30, 2016 10:00 AM to sign his new children’s book Little Shaq Takes a Chance!

Press Release:

This new story in the exciting series created by Shaquille O’Neal and illustrated by Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent award winner Theodore Taylor III, encourages kids to find their own true talents.

Like most kids, Little Shaq doesn’t love trying new things, especially if he might not be very good at them. So when his class is assigned projects for the school’s upcoming art show, he’s not sure that his skills will transfer from the basketball court to the art studio. Rosa Lindy and Barry have their projects all figured out. Can Little Shaq find the confidence to embrace his own style and create a piece for the show?

Books will be provided by Little Shop of Stories.

RSVP on Facebook!
