Maravich signing at Hollywood Book Fair

Pete Maravich Book Signing on Sunday, Sept. 28

Wayne Federman, one of the co-authors of Pete Maravich: The Authorized Biography of Pistol Pete, will be signing selling and signing books at the West Hollywood Book Fair this Sunday afternoon.

Federman will be signing from 1p.m. to 3 p.m. The award-winning West Hollywood Book Fair takes place on Sunday, September 28, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at West Hollywood Park, 647 North San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood, California.

“Pistol” Pete Maravich is recognized by the NBA as one of the all-time Top 50 Basketball Players. More than 30 years after he left Louisiana State University, his NCAA scoring record still stands. He enjoyed fame, wealth and, short of winning an NBA championship, achieved every possible success.

Yet despite all that, Pete was unfulfilled and unhappy. After injury forced him to retire from the NBA, he suffered deep depression and thoughts of suicide.

Things changed dramatically and permanently, however, when Pete found Christ. At last he experienced peace and a purpose that extended beyond the basketball court. He became an avid student of the Bible and a tireless evangelist. His behavior as a husband and father was transformed.
