Ivory Latta Book Signing

The Town of Clover will be hosting a book signing with WNBA star Ivory Latta on Friday, July 21st from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at Gallery 120, located inside the Clover Community Center at 120 Bethel Street.  

Bounce Bounce! Despite the Height is the lively, true story of Ivory Latta, one of the smallest women to play for the WNBA. This full-color illustrated book for young readers follows young Ivory as she learns to play basketball, perfect her game, and outplay her big brothers – all despite her height. Featuring whimsical illustrations by D.J. Coffman, the book also includes a dream journal to help motivate students and inspire conversation.

“This book is a dream come true for me,” says Latta. “I love kids and I’ve always wanted to write a children’s book and share my experiences.”  
Ivory Latta currently plays in the WNBA for the Washington Mystics and is from York County, SC. She is the youngest of seven children and grew up loving sports. In high school, she became the top scorer for men's and women's basketball in South Carolina despite being only 5', 6". She has played basketball professionally since 2007 and has won many accolades during her career. 

“This is a really fun book,” says Mindy Kuhn, President of Warren Publishing. “It’s perfect for little sports fans who will cheer with Ivory as she learns to play ball. It really captures Ivory’s vibrant personality and teaches kids to never give up.”
