Joe Barry Carroll, the tenth of thirteen children ,grew up to become a seven-foot-tall NCAA All-American First Team at Purdue University, the number one overall pick in the 1980 NBA Draft, and an NBA All-Star. He is now a wealth advisor, philanthropist, painter and author of the memoir Growing Up . . . In Words and Images.

 

In 2014 Joe received the Champion for Justice award from the Atlanta Braves and the Center for Civil and Human Rights. The award recognizes his philanthropy and activism, which Carroll began by establishing a non-profit foundation at the age of 26.

Joe Barry Carroll's Growing Up is poetic, strong, fragile, and honest. It tells universal stories that flow, and move us and remind us how resilient the human spirit can be.

Kenny Leon - Tony Award winning Broadway stage, Television and Film Director

 

It is an unflinching look at the events, both good and bad, that shape a life - the choices made, and the effects of those choices; all relayed in a nuanced, almost lyrical writing style that makes this book an engaging read.
