If you’re in the Greater Los Angeles area, I suggest you swing by the gorgeous UCLA campus on Saturday, May 5 @ noon, and pick up a copy of YOU LET SOME GIRL BEAT YOU? by Ann Meyers Drysdale, where she’ll be signing alongside her bud Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
Not only is this wonderful book about Annie’s amazing athletic career about breaking glass ceilings, but it’s about sticking with a dream. How many people told you that writing was a dumb idea, that you’d never make it, or why are you wasting your time?
And how many have you bowed to that narrow-minded sentiment? Well, neither did Annie. Instead, she kept her head down, followed her dreams, married Dodgers legend Don Drysdale and had three gorgeous kids, and is now V.P. of the NBA Phoenix Pacers and WNBA Phoenix Mercury.
This is an uplifting story that proves just how far you can go if you work hard, don’t listen to the garbage, and have talent. Go Annie.
