Literati Bookstore presents Abby Wambach
Rackham Auditorium
Ann Arbor, MI
Share this event:

Literati is thrilled to welcome two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion Abby Wambach to Rackham Auditorium in Ann Arbor, in celebration of her memoir, Forward.

About Forward

Abby Wambach has always pushed the limits of what is possible. At age seven she was put on the boys' soccer team. At age thirty five she would become the highest goal scorer--male or female--in the history of soccer, capturing the nation's heart with her team's 2015 World Cup Championship. Called an inspiration (and "badass" by President Obama), Abby has become a fierce advocate for women's rights and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of her team to the real world. As she reveals in this searching memoir, Abby's professional success often masked her inner struggle to reconcile the various parts of herself: ferocious competitor, daughter, leader, wife.

With stunning candor, Abby shares her inspiring and often brutal journey from girl in Rochester, New York, to world class athlete. Far more than a sports memoir, Forward is gripping tale of resilience and redemption and a reminder that heroism is, above all, about embracing life's challenges with fearlessness and heart.

About the Event

Featuring a conversation with Doug Tribou, host of Morning Edition for Michigan Radio, and former reporter and producer for NPR's Only A Game, this event will take place at Rackham Auditorium on September 17th, 2016, at 7pm. Doors for seating will open at 6:15pm. There are two ticket options: a $10 dollar general admission ticket, and a $30 dollar general admission and hardcover book bundle. Though both ticketing options provide general admission seating, book-bundle ticket holders will have first access to the signing line following the event. Book-bundle ticket holders will pick up their books at the event, and not before. Additional copies of Forward will be available to purchase in the lobby, including a young reader's edition.

General admission ticket holders may also have books signed, and are asked to join the signing line after book-bundle ticket holders. Due to time constraints, Abby will only be signing books. There will no posed photographs during the signing (though you are welcome to take pictures while you are in the signing line). Books will not be personalized.
