New Must-Read Book: Abby Wambach Memoir Featured

08 Dec

Exciting book news for our readers. We just learned Dey Street Books, an imprint of William Morrow Publishers, and HarperCollins Children’s Books have acquired world rights to a memoir and young reader’s edition by Abby Wambach, the 2015 Women’s World Cup champion and highest international goal scorer of all time- male or female. 


Both books, entitled Forward, are scheduled for a fall 2016 release. This is really exciting since after decades-long soccer career culminating in leading the US Women’s National Team to World Cup victory, Wambach announced her retirement on the heels of a White House ceremony honoring the World Cup champions. Wambach is the highest scoring soccer player of all time- male or female- and has been called “the soul of the United States team” by the New York Times. She has also been a vocal advocate for women’s rights, equal pay and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of the her team’s win to the wider world.

Wambach says, “I’m not writing a book to say “Look at me!” I want to share my story, my struggles, and my worldview with the hope that it may inspire others to dream big, and fight for a better world.”

A lifestyle publication by women, for women.
