Author Event - The Comeback: LeBron, the Cavs & Cleveland: How LeBron James Came Home and Brought Cleveland a Championship Book by Terry Pluto
This epic homecoming tale recounts one of the greatest Cleveland sports stories ever. LeBron James and the Cavaliers took fans on a roller coaster ride from despair to hope and, finally, to glory as the 2016 NBA champions. Fans felt gut-punched in 2010 when local hero and MVP LeBron James announced he was leaving the Cavaliers and northeast Ohio for Miami, Florida. Then, in June 2014, LeBron announced he was coming home. And he had a mission: lead the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals and give Cleveland its first championship in fifty-two years. Veteran Cleveland sportswriter Terry Pluto tells how it all happened. Pluto is a sports columnist for the Plain Dealer. He has twice been honored by the Associated Press Sports Editors as the nation’s top sports columnist for medium-sized newspapers. He is a ten-time winner of the Ohio Sports Writer of the Year award, has received more than fifty state and local writing awards and he was called “Perhaps the best American writer of sports books” by the Chicago Tribune in 1997. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
