Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has revealed she’s turning author with the publication of her first book.
The Star Wars actress announced the news on Instagram.
“I am pleased to reveal I have written a children’s book! It’s called Sulwe!” Nyong’o wrote.
“Sulwe is a dark skinned girl who goes on a starry-eyed adventure, and awakens with a reimagined sense of beauty. She encounters lessons that we learn as children and spend our lives unlearning.”
“This is a story for little ones, but no matter the age I hope it serves as an inspiration for everyone to walk with joy in your own skin,” she added. “Coming January 2019!!”
