Siya Kolisi feels it is the right time to share his story after it was confirmed publisher HarperCollins had landed his life story that will be released next year.
Executive publisher Oli Malcolm bought world all-language rights from Kelly Hogarth at Roc Nation Sports, supported by Rory Scarfe at The Blair Partnership. Written with Boris Starling, the currently untitled book will be published next year, ahead of the forthcoming British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa in 2021.
Commenting on the news, Kolisi said the book will reveal more things about him because many parts of his life story have not been told yet.
‘There are so many parts of my story that haven’t been told and I feel it’s the perfect time to share these with the hope of inspiring and motivating anyone who has ever faced adversity,’ Kolisi said.
‘It was so important to me that my story was told from my own account and with the right publishing group. I’m thrilled to partner with HarperCollins on a creative project that we can both be proud of.’
Excited about this one 👊🏾 https://t.co/1vzmYXPjam
