Tonight on Inquiry we talk with GENE LUEN YANG. He writes, sometimes draws comic books and graphic novels. And tonight we are talking about his newest book DRAGON HOOPS: FROM SMALL STEPS TO GREAT LEAPS. This graphic memoir traces Yang’s coverage of the high school basketball team where he teaches. It’s a project he started even though he has never enjoyed sports and knows nothing about basketball. His book is a thrilling account of his school’s attempt to finally win the State finals a well as a unique history of the sport.
