Hardie Grant acquires Ablett autobiography

Hardie Grant Books has acquired world rights to AFL player Gary Ablett Jr’s autobiography.

The fully illustrated book will include guest chapters from his father Gary Ablett Sr, Geelong captain Joel Selwood, and former coach Mark Thompson.

‘It’s been a really interesting process to go back over the years, plus I’ve been lucky to have a few others step in with their recollections, like Mum and Dad, Joel Selwood and Mark Thompson,’ said Ablett. ‘Football has given me so much over the years, it will be great to share my story.’

Gary Ablett: Autobiography will be published on 5 November to coincide with the end of the 2020 season and Ablett’s retirement from the AFL.
