Brittney Griner working on memoir about Russian captivity
The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) – Saying she is ready to share the “unfathomable” experience of being arrested and incarcerated in Russia, basketball star Brittney Griner is working on a memoir that is scheduled for spring 2024.
Griner was arrested last year at the airport in Moscow on drug-related charges and detained for nearly 10 months, much of that time in prison.
Her plight unfolded at the same time Russia invaded Ukraine and further heightened tensions between Russia and the U.S., ending only after she was freed in exchange for the notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout.
Griner’s memoir is currently untitled and will eventually be published in a young adult edition. Financial terms were not disclosed.
