Audrey Griffin, wife of Bucks assistant coach and former NBA player Adrian Griffin, will sell copies of her debut book, "The Day I Took Off My Cape: An NBA Wife's Journey to Finding Family Balance," TOMORROW, Saturday, April 3, at the Bradley Center when the Bucks host the Suns at 7:30 p.m. Griffin will be stationed outside of section 203 and will sell copies of the book, on sale for $20, through the third quarter.

As the former Vice President of the National Basketball Wives Association, Griffin draws from personal experiences in her tell-all, self help book that touches on the topics of motherhood, family management and personal development. In "The Day I Took Off My Cape," the 33-year-old national parenting writer urges women to "remove the cape of society's unrealistic pressure to be Superwoman or Supermom."

"Being a wife of an NBA player is at times hard to manage because of the heavy traveling schedule," Griffin says. "I was juggling four kids and managing the household while trying to take care of myself, which I never seemed to find the time for. I was wearing down mentally, physically and emotionally as well, which became evident in my relationships with my husband, children, family and friends. The day arrived where I reached my breaking point and needed to desperately find a balance in my life because the everyday pressures had taken a huge toll on me."

Griffin's book, an off-shoot of her popular parenting lifestyle website "Remove Your Cape" on www.audreygriffin.com, details her journey and offers advice on how women can keep their children, their home and their husband happy and together. Edited by award winning author and journalist Asha Bandele, the book hit shelves nationwide on February 22.
