The Nicholas Colby Fund's Lamont Gilbert will be interviewing former NBA star, author, poet, and motivational speaker Adonal Foyle on June 21 at the Lafayette Library & Learning Center as part of the launch of a new family series called Authors & Athletes. Nicholas loved the Lafayette library so along with hospitals and speaking engagements we collaborate on efforts that are focused on children.
The foundation of the interview will be Adonal's new children book called Too Tall Foyle Finds His Game. "It is a charming story of a young child who is different from other boys his age...he is just too tall! Like all young boys, he wants to play sports, but he just can't find one that fits. He tries EVERYTHING. The kids tease him when he fails, so he gets sadder and sadder. Then one day his life changes forever. A new sport comes to his Caribbean island where being tall is a good thing to be. It's a tale of a boy struggling to find his place in the world, sometimes failing, but never giving up until he finds it."
