Sugar Rodgers with Christopher John Farley
Wednesday, April 21, 7:30 PM
Sugar Rodgers presents They Better Call Me Sugar: My Journey from the Hood to the Hardwood
In conversation with Christopher John Farley

WNBA player Sugar Rodgers shares her story in her new book, They Better Call Me Sugar, as a message of hope and inspiration for young girls and boys everywhere, but especially those growing up in economically challenging conditions. Growing up in dire poverty in Suffolk, Virginia, Sugar (born Ta'Shauna) Rodgers never imagined that she would become an all-star player in the WNBA. Rodgers’s road to a successful career as a professional basketball player is fraught with sadness—including her mother's death when she was a teen, which left her essentially homeless. Throughout it all, Rodgers clung to basketball as a way to keep herself focused and sane. They Better Call Me Sugar delivers a powerful message of discipline, perseverance, and always believing in oneself. Award-winning journalist and author Christopher John Farley joins Rodgers in conversation at this pre-pub virtual event!
