Chris Kamara Book Signing
November 10 @ 16:00 – 18:00
As part of the 2023 Farsley Literature Festival we are delighted to announce that former Leeds United and Bradford City footballer and broadcasting legend Chris ‘Kammy’ Kamara will be joining us in the shop to meet fans and sign copies of his book, KAMMY: MY UNBELIEVABLE LIFE.
With his trademark banter and unflinching honesty, Kammy sees Chris ‘Kammy’ Kamara tell the unbelievable stories of his life, revealing how he went from hard-tackling footballer to broadcasting national treasure.
Presenter, commentator, (sometimes masked) singer, footballer, manager and campaigner, Kammy’s action-packed career has made him a bona fide British hero. But it hasn’t always been plain sailing.
Kammy had a tough upbringing, faced racism on the terraces during his playing career and has, in recent years, dealt with a rare brain condition – apraxia – that has affected his speech and seen him say goodbye to Sky Sports. Despite this, Kammy’s star has only risen as he’s met every challenge with courage, determination and his infectious smile.
With entertaining stories of his playing career from Pompey to Leeds and beyond; his management at Bradford City and Stoke; his crazy travels around the world; of Soccer Saturday banter; presenting Ninja Warrior; and the incredible friendships he’s made along the way, Kammy is an unforgettable ride from one of Britain’s best-loved broadcasters.
This event is part of 2023 Farsley Literature Festival.
