Blogger Kelly Jensen (GalleyCat)Kelly Jensen, a book blogger and former librarian, has signed a deal with Algonquin Young Readers. She (pictured, via) plans to curate and edit a YA collection of feminism-themed essays.

According to Bustle, Jensen has enlisted 23 young adult writers and five artists to create pieces for this project. Some of the contributors include Kody Keplinger, Malinda Lo, and Nova Ren Suma. The release date has been set for Spring 2017.

Here’s more from Jensen’s blog post: “One of the goals of this collection is to have a solid group of essays, as well as art and comics. One of the other goals was to also reach out to ‘big name’ and celebrities to get their voices into the collection, too. I won’t lie and say that part was easy, but I will say that has been one of the most enjoyable, eye-opening, and educational elements of putting together this collection.”
