Kareem Abdul-Jabbar takes his new book to Harlem kids

Harlem native and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar shared his new children’s book, “Sasquatch in the Paint,” a mystery about an academically oriented young basketball player, with students at a neighborhood after-school program earlier this week.

The students came from the St. Aloysius Educational Clinic, which began as a program for students from P.S. 92 but now serves students across the city through after-school and summer enrichment and tutoring programs. (Photo via Reading is Fundamental)
