WACO, Texas (July 6, 2015) – In partnership with Isaiah Austin, the Baylor Bookstore will host an in-store book signing for Austin’s new title, Dream Again, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, July 10, at the bookstore at 1201 S. Fifth St. on the Baylor campus.

A year ago, just before the NBA draft, the former Baylor Bears basketball standout learned of a health issue known as Marfan Syndrome, which halted his basketball career but not his spirit, tenacity and joy. This book gives insight into how he has dealt with this news and how he plans to use it for God’s glory.

“We look forward to celebrating Isaiah’s new book and what it means for him and his family,” said Rick Busby, trade manager of the Baylor Bookstore. “We look forward to showing him how much he means to the Baylor community as well.”

Following the bookstore signing, Austin will speak about the book and his journey from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Central Waco-McLennan County Library, 1717 Austin Ave. His book will be available for purchase while supply lasts at both locations.

For more details, please visit or contact the bookstore at baylor@bkstr.com or (254) 710-2161.
