A drive-through book signing with former ND basketball
coach Muffet McGraw will benefit Girls on the Run Michiana.
Former Notre Dame basketball coach Muffet McGraw will sign copies of her new book, “Expect More! Dare to
Stand Up and Stand Out: A Guide for Women on
Reaching Their Potential” at a drive-through
book signing from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, March
27, at Ave Maria Press, 1865 Moreau Drive, Notre Dame, Indiana.
Proceeds will benefit Girls on the Run Michiana.
McGraw retired in 2020 after thirty-three years as
head coach of the University of Notre Dame women’s basketball team. She ranks first on the all-time wins list among single-sport coaches in the history of Notre Dame athletics. With an overall record of 936-293, she led the Irish to two national championships (2001, 2018). McGraw’s teams appeared in twenty-six NCAA
tournaments, including seventeen Sweet Sixteens, nine Final Fours, and seven championship games. She was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball
Hall of Fame in 2017.
In a comment at the 2019 NCAA Final Four press conference that went viral, McGraw said, “We don’t have enough female role models. We don’t have enough visible women leaders. We don’t have enough women in power.”
She wasn’t just talking about basketball.
In Expect More!, McGraw shares a bold message: It’s time for women to take a rightful and fair place in positions of leadership. In order to do that, she says,
women should approach every opportunity not only with confidence but also with swagger.
McGraw’s message fits perfectly with the mission of Girls on the Run Michiana. The organization is committed to helping girls know and activate their limitless potential. Girls on the Run Michiana has served more than 2,300 girls in Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko, Marshall, and St. Joseph counties since it began in 2010.
Anyone who wears a Notre Dame Women’s Basketball lime green shirt to the book signing will be entered into a drawing for a special prize. During the socially distanced book signing, copies of McGraw’s hardcover book will be available for $15, with $5 of each book going to Girls on the Run Michiana. Ave Maria Press will accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, Venmo and PayPal on site.
