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.

“Music rhythms are mathematical patterns. When you hear a song and your body starts moving with it, your body is doing math. The kids in their parents’ garage practicing to be a band may not realize it, but they’re also practicing math.”
– Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
* I’ve always believed this to be true, as a math student in college-turned musician. If you haven’t read Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s book yet What Color Is My World? I strongly recommend it.
