Tony Dungy hits book promotion path Saturday

Former Indianapolis Colts football Coach Tony Dungy will be in the metro area Saturday for two events to promote his newest self-improvement book.

In the morning, he’s scheduled to speak during a program featuring positive role models from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Traders Point Christian Church, 6590 South Indianapolis Road, Whitestown.

Then in the afternoon, he is due to autograph copies of his recently published book at a Christian bookstore in Plainfield.

Dungy is scheduled from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Family Christian Store, 401 Plainfield Commons. The shop is in the Plainfield Commons shopping center, in the 2600 block of East Main Street.

His latest book, “Uncommon, Finding Your Path to Significance” ($19.95, Tyndale House Publishers) debuted last week at No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list of advice and how-to books.

This is the third consecutive Dungy title to reach the Times list. His first was “Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices and Priorities of a Winning Life” (Tyndale, 2007) which reached the top of the hardcover nonfiction list. And “You Can Do It!” (Little Simon Inspirations, 2008), which was number 1 on the children’s list.

Dungy has been on a multi-state book-signing and promotional tour. More information is available at www.coachdungy.com and on Facebook at the “Dare to Be Uncommon” fan page.
