A picture book based on Hillary Clinton’s It Takes A Village will be published in the UK this autumn.
Publishers Simon & Schuster have confirmed the release. It will also publish a collection of essays by Clinton.
The publisher said: “Over 20 years ago, the original It Takes a Village inspired the nation to think critically about how the choices made today, to raise our children and support families, will determine how we will face the challenges of the future.
Now considered a classic, the book spent 20 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, was published in over 20 foreign markets, and earned wide critical and consumer acclaim. The picture book edition will bring this inspiring message to a new generation in a format that is perfect for story time and bedtime.”
The picture book will include illustrations by Marla Frazee and will be released in September.
Clinton’s as yet untitled essay collection will be inspired by “the hundreds of quotations [Clinton] has been collecting for decades”, according to S&S.
“These are the words I live by,’ said the US presidential candidate, who will her experiences in the 2016 campaign. “These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer.”
She added: “I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers.”
