ALUN Wyn Jones opens Griffin Books in the venue’ first in-person event since March 2020.
‘Belonging’ is the story about how the boy left Mumbles and returned as the most capped rugby player of all time.
Mel Griffin said: “We are incredibly lucky to be hosting one of only four speaking events Alun Wyn will be doing to celebrate his new autobiography Belonging.
“It is the story of what it takes to become a player who is seen by many as one of the greatest Welsh players there has ever been. What it takes to go from sitting, crossed legged on the hall floor at school, watching the 1997 Lions Tour of South Africa to being named the 2021 Lions Captain.
“But is it also about perthyn – belonging, playing for Wales, working your way through the age-grades and the club matches and regional sides.”
From the rain swept pitches of Swansea to making his test debut against Argentina in Patagonia in 2006, from touring with the Lions in 2009, 2013, 2017 and 2021 to losing a parent and building a family
The event will be running on September 27 from 7pm to 9pm at the Hilton Hotel Cardiff.
This is a rare opportunity to hear Alun speak at length and with candour about his life before rugby, and his path to success.
Everyone who books for this event will receive a signed exclusive copy of ‘Belonging’ with a beautiful sprayed edge, worth £20.
