Keith O’Brien, author of “Outside Shot,” will host a book signing at 7 tonight at Barnes & Noble Booksellers at The Summit in Louisville.
“Outside Shot” chronicles the 2009-10 Scott County High School boys’ basketball team that included high-profile seniors Chad Jackson, Ge’Lawn Guyn and Dakotah Euton. The Cardinals finished 29-7, falling to Ballard in the Sweet 16 semifinals.
According to the book’s website, O’Brien “follows the team’s top players and their legendary coach (Billy Hicks) as they struggle to redeem themselves in the face of impossible odds: once-loyal fans now turned against them, parents who demand athletic greatness, and scouts who weigh their every move, turning children into ‘mini-athlete gods.’ “
O’Brien is a former reporter for The Boston Globe and a freelance writer for several publications. For more information visit keithob.com.
