“It was the right moment, at the right time and the right person,” Suggs said about authoring Andrew Young’s book. “It’s been a great experience. I’ve enjoyed traveling the country with him – learning so much about him, learning so much about myself and learning more about this country as we’ve been promoting the book.”
