Poet, Former Wizard, Talks Fatherhood

Former Washington Wizard Etan Thomas, known for his poetry (see More Than An Athlete), has definitely caught the book writing bug.  His latest book is titled, Fatherhood: Rising to the Ultimate Challenge.

The book's Foreword was written by none other than Tony ('Your Secret's Safe With Me') Dungy. You can't go wrong when the book's forward is written by Tony Dungy.

Thomas will discuss and autograph his book at the Hyattsville Bus Boys and Poets on Wednesday, May 9th.

He'll be joined by a few of his friends to mark the occasion. 
Joining him will be sportscaster Lou Holder, Laron Profit (former Washington Wizard, ESPN 980), Roger Mason Jr. (Washington Wizard), Ken Harvey (former Washington Redskin), Jeff Green (Boston Celtics), and Michael Walton (Olympic Sprinter).

**Update**  May 8, 2012

Perhaps they read this post.  We got word that there will be a special Father's Day event, June 17th at the 14th and V St, NW  DC Busboys and Poets location.

Here are the new deets.

And on Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 5:00pm, join Etan Thomas and local literary activist E. Ethelbert Miller @ 14th & V as they share their tales of fatherhood for a special Father's Day event!
