Hall of Fame sportswriter Jack McCallum was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago, and now he's written a lively, good-humored, and, above all, factual book to help educate men --and the women who love them -- about this confusing, and potentially deadly, disease.
The result is the book, "The Prostate Chronicles: What Every Man Can Learn from my Humbling, Confusing, and Sometimes Comical Battle with Prostate Cancer." McCallum will speak about his experiences at a book signing this Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Yolo's Vibe in Las Olas from 5:30 -7 p.m.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men and the second most fatal. Worse than the obvious commonality and mortality of this disease, though, is the fact that prostate cancer can rob a man of his manhood. Accordingly, McCallum handles the subject not only with care and knowledge but also with his typical brand of irreverent good humor.
McCallum is the author of the bestseller "Dream Team," and a 30-year veteran of Sports Illustrated magazine. he is a winner of the Curt Gowdy Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Admission is $10 and includes one complimentary drink and appetizers. Books will be available for sale and signing.
The event is sponsored by the Broward Public Library Foundation in honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
