Not sure when she'll find the time, but Megan is now set to write two books, one book about her life on and off the pitch, and another for middle-graders about “the power young people have within their own communities and the world at large.”

Megan writes, “I hope this book will inspire people to find what they can do, and in turn inspire other people around them to do the same.”

Penguin Books expects the first book to be released in the fall of 2020…

Megan won the FIFA  World Player of the Year award, beating out Alex Morgan and England’s Lucy Bronze.

Kind of a no brainer.

Interesting outfit.

She’s still not going to the effing White House.

Some guy named Messi won the Men’s award.

And Megan adds Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the year.

https://www.si.com/sportsperson/2019/12/09/megan-rapinoe-2019-sportsperson-of-the-year

World Cup winning goal, Golden Ball, Golden boot, fifa World player of the year, Balón D’or, “the Pose” now this.

Not a bad year.

She’s not going to the effing White House for this award, either.

The article is a good read.

And... Time magazine adds the USWNT as Athlete of the Year, collectively.

https://time.com/athlete-of-the-year-2019-us-womens-soccer-team/

Prominently featured is Megan’s role as a team leader, lightning rod for rights, confrontation with the Donald, and a leader in their suit for equal pay.
