Reggie Lewis: Quiet Grace
At age 27, Boston Celtic Captain, Reggie Lewis, was on the verge of superstar status. His career & his life were cut short by a heart condition. This book does not dwell on the controversy or sensationalism that characterized Reggie's death, rather, it explores the life of this outstanding human being. Reggie Lewis was more than just a fine basketball player. He was an outstanding young man - warm, caring & generous. This is the story of Reggie's roots. You will learn of the family members, friends & forces that helped shape him & the quiet grace that helped him rise above the violence & poverty of his childhood Baltimore neighborhood. A review by John Bisney of ASSOCIATED PRESS states: "Heartfelt & compelling...QUIET GRACE vividly portrays Reggie's qualities & accomplishments. This straightforward account shows that the truth of Reggie's life outshines any unproven speculation about his death." The book contains a collection of photographs & Reggie's career stats in both college & the NBA. The writing style is gentle & conversational, written from interviews with family members & teammates. Young & old can benefit from the fine example of Reggie's life but the major audience is adolescents & young adults, including some who do not read very many books. To this end, the hardcover is priced at $15.50 & proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated in honor of Reggie Lewis to civic & charitable organizations.
