Chelsea Clinton Cover (GalleyCat)Chelsea Clinton has landed a deal with Penguin Young Readers. She intends to write a middle grade book entitled It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going.

For this project, Clinton will address a variety of different issues including poverty, education, equality, epidemics, and climate change. Executive editor Jill Santopolo will edit the manuscript. The publication date has been scheduled for September 15th.

Clinton had this statement in the press release: “In It’s Your World, I try to explain what I think are some of the biggest challenges facing our world today, particularly for young people. I also explore some of the solutions to those challenges and share stories of inspiring kids and teenagers doing amazing work to help people and our planet have brighter and healthier futures. My hope is that the book will inspire readers to realize that they can start making a difference now, in their own way, for their family, their community, and our world.”
