John McDermott will be at the Hazlet Township Library on Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss his book, “A Legend in His Own Mind.”In his book, McDermott, who starred at Raritan High School and Brookdale Community College in basketball, chronicled his basketball life, his descent to drug and alcohol addiction and his recovery. He will talk about what it was like writing his first book and how he overcame his addictions. His goal in writing the book is to help those with addictions overcome them and to prevent someone from using drugs in the first place. He wants his very personal story to be a life-saver.McDermott now lives in Middletown.
