Author Talk: Dylan Alcott

Thursday 06 December 2018

Dylan Alcott OAM is an Australian Paralympic gold and silver medallist in two sports - basketball and tennis. He is also a triple j radio host, keynote presenter and motivational speaker, business owner and youth mentor.

Growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Dylan experienced his fair share of bullying and loneliness. By early high school, he was feeling pretty low - depressed, overweight and fearful for his future. Then he discovered sport – swimming, basketball, and tennis - and found he was naturally pretty handy at all of them.

In Able, Dylan tells his inspirational story.
