LeBron Book Signings in Westlake, Akron
After appearances from The Daily Show to NPR’s Fresh Air, LeBron James is capping his media tour in support of the King James Bio, Shooting Stars, with local book signings. He’ll appear at the Westlake Borders (30121 Detroit Road) Friday, September 18. Saturday the 19th, he’ll return to his hometown bookseller, the Montrose/Fairlawn Barnes & Noble (4015 Medina Road).
Expect a mob scene. The stores do, so they’re already establishing riot-control protocols.
The Friday Borders signing starts at 7 p.m., but they’ll begin handing out wristbands, starting at 9 a.m., to customers who buy the book. The store will give out a maximum of 600, which doesn’t guarantee a signature. And the King is only signing the book, no more than two copies, and no memorabilia.
The Saturday Barnes & Noble signing has a similar drill. The event starts at 2 p.m., but the store begins handing out wristbands at 7 a.m. If you’re not in line yet, get there soon.
And, yes, he did book-signings in New York first. — D.X. Ferris
