Public invited to hear former senator, NBA star Bill Bradley at WFU Feb. 27

Former U.S. senator, best-selling author and Basketball Hall of Fame member Bill Bradley will deliver Wake Forest University’s Founders’ Day Convocation address Feb. 27 at 11 a.m. in Wait Chapel. Bradley’s address is titled “America: The Path Ahead.” The event is free and open to the public.

Bradley, a Rhodes Scholar and former New York Knicks standout, received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Wake Forest in 1986, when he spoke at the university’s Opening Convocation. Since then, he ran for the 2000 Democratic presidential nomination and has written several books including “Time Present, Time Past,” a memoir, “The Journey from Here,” his newest book, and the 1998 “Values of the Game,” a collection of basketball-inspired essays.

Following the convocation ceremony, Bradley will sign copies of “Values of the Game” at the College Book Store at 2 p.m.
