Les Klinger and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Sherlock Holmes

Partner Les Klinger, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Sherlock Holmes, and long-time friend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar teamed up for a one-on-one public conversation discussing Kareem’s new book Mycroft Holmes. The well-attended event was held at Chevalier’s Bookstore, which, established in 1940, is one of the oldest bookstores in Los Angeles.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is recognized by Sports Illustrated and Time magazine as history’s greatest basketball player (he is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer) and has been an avid Sherlock Holmes fan for most of his life. Les Klinger is considered to be one of the world’s foremost authorities on those twin icons of the Victorian era, Sherlock Holmes and Dracula, and has won numerous awards for his work on these historic subjects.
