William Morrow to Publish Dwayne Wade's Memoir

A Father First by Dwayne Wade

William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, has announced plans to publish a memoir by Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. Wade will share insights on his life both on-and off- the court, with a large focus on fatherhood. The book is called, A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball. It will be released on September 18, 2012.

In March 2011, Wade earned sole custody of his two young sons. Most recently, Dwyane teamed up with President Barack Obama to support his Fatherhood & Mentoring Initiative, a national parenting program geared toward encouraging fathers to become more involved in the lives of their children.

Wade says, "As a child, I grew up with aspirations to one day be a professional basketball player, and I am living that dream every day as a proud member of the Miami Heat. However, the daily role I play in the lives of my two children is the single most significant undertaking of my life, and the job I take most seriously. While my basketball career has brought me many rewards - including an NBA Championship in 2006 and an Olympic Gold Medal in the 2008 Summer Games, my children are the two greatest gifts of my life."
