The Bookstore Plus is pleased to host Olympic Gold Medalist and author, Nathan Chen, for a book signing event to autograph copies of his book One Jump At a Time: My Story.

About The Book
In this exhilarating memoir, three-time World Champion and Olympic gold-medalist tells the story of his remarkable journey to success, reflecting on his life as a Chinese American figure skater and the joys and challenges he has experienced—including the tremendous sacrifices he and his family made, and the physical and emotional pain he endured.

About The Author
Nathan Chen is a twenty-three-year-old American Olympic figure skater. He began skating at the age of three in his hometown of Salt Lake City after watching his two older brothers play hockey and his older sisters compete in figure skating. He has also trained in competitive gymnastics and ballet. At the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Nathan became the first man in figure skating history to land five quadruple jumps in a single performance, and is the first Asian-American male skater to win U.S., World, and Olympic titles. He was named the 2019 Team USA Male Olympic Athlete of the Year and was included in the 2019 Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. Nathan is currently a student at Yale University, and in his spare time, plays the guitar and piano and enjoys basketball and tennis. He lives in Lake Forest, California.

This year’s celebration will feature Allison Heard, SUNY Plattsburgh Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Allison is a native of Chicago, Illinois. She earned her both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Vermont in Burlington. Allison will certainly bring a message message to recognize this important day.

Martin Luther King promoted nonviolence to seek equality for all people. Allison’s in her role as the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will promote the importance of recognizing everyone equally.

The program is FREE to the public. We hope you can attend.
