Abdul-Jabbar to Discuss Mycroft Holmes Backstory at MIST Harlem


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, along with writing partner Anna Waterhouse, have published a riveting, untold backstory of Mycroft Holmes, brother of Sherlock Holmes.  They have, with familiar third-person narrative, suspense and astute historical precision, offered a cultural perspective that weaves a sophisticated story level into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Holmes saga.

Mr. Abdul-Jabbar will appear at MIST Harlem on Wednesday, October 28th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  He will be joined in conversation with Deborah Morales, and will have a book signing.  The event is free to the public, but reserving a seat is advised.

Our last night celebrates Nuit Blanche, which is celebrated in cities around the world,” says, Bailey-McClain, Executive Director for the West Harlem Art Fund and Artistic Director for Under the Viaduct. “We use digital technology to light up Harlem with innovative and original art installations.”
