Join Angela Lauria of the Author Incubator as she interviews coach Jim Johnson, author of A Coach and a Miracle.  The book revolves around the story of high school student Jason McElwain, known simply as J-Mac, a teen with autism who, in the final four minutets or so of a basketball game for the division title in 2006, scored one two-point and six three-point shots after initially missing two, for a total of twenty points. A lot of people told Jim to write a book about that, and he obliged.
