Ancient Celtic Center Tacko Fall co-author of new children’s book

We’ve seen former Boston Celtics big man Tacko Fall play center field, on the fringes on the breaking news and even play football on the field. But now the Senegalese center adds yet another chapter to his resume – literally.

The UCF product wrote his first children’s book, titled “To New Heights” with co-author and agent Justin Haynes and illustrator Reggie Brown. The tome tells Fall’s story of making the NBA a small-town West African boy with big dreams and a greater drive to achieve them. “I have been deeply blessed by so many amazing people in my life, people who have inspired me to believe in myself and pursue my dreams,” the former Boston big man wrote in an Instagram post announcing the book. .

“My book, To New Heights came out today!” He continued. “This is the story of my journey, written in the hope that it can inspire any child who reads it, in the same way that so many of you have inspired me.”

Published by Candlewick Press and available in hardcover and digital format, you can pick up the new fall book at most bookstores starting today.
