Vanessa Bryant Keeps Kobe Bryant’s Memory Alive, Announces His Upcoming Novel ‘Geese Are Never Swans’

Back when Kobe Bryant’s death was first announced, we had heard that he was in the middle of writing a book. The people who were collaborating with him on the book were obviously shocked to hear of his passing and did not know how to proceed.

Well, it looks like they had multiple conversations with Kobe’s wife, Vanessa, and together they decided to finish and release the book in Kobe’s honor.

On Thursday, Vanessa went on her Instagram account to announce the release date of the novel, Geese Are Never Swans.

Whether goose or swan, I have wings and I’ll fly.’ 🕊 🤍 🤍🕊Introducing Geese Are Never Swans, one of my favorite novels created by my husband @kobebryant. Readers will meet his newest character Gus Bennett, an aspiring Olympic swimmer facing tough issues that he must overcome in order to win in the pool. This story perfectly highlights the healing nature that lies within sports.

The novel is expected to hit shelves on June 21, which is almost exactly one month away. It’ll be released through Bryant’s multimedia content company, Granity Studios. The same company that worked on his ‘Dear Basketball’ film, which earned him an Oscar.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been just four months since Kobe and his daughter Gianna died in the helicopter crash. It feels like so much longer, thanks to this pandemic, but it really hasn’t been that long at all.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Bryant family. It can’t be easy trying to process death in the current state of the world.
