Chelsea Clinton's books celebrate the stories of the changemaking women
Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, CHELSEA CLINTON recently penned The Book of Gutsy Women along with her mother, which is a brilliant look at the women who have shaped our world today. It features portraits of more than 100 women-- ranging from 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, to 17th-century nun and poet Sor Juan Inés de la Cruz-- to shine a light on the stories and the histories that are all too often overlooked or left unwritten. Chelsea has another joint literary venture with Hillary Clinton coming out this spring, Grandma’s Garden, which will celebrate family, tradition and discovery, “an ode to mothers, grandmothers and the children they love” (March 31, Penguin Random House). Also coming out this spring – the third book in Chelsea’s hit She Persisted children’s series, She Persisted in Sports will be available May 19, 2020 (Penguin Random House). At engagements worldwide, Chelsea Clinton provides inspiration and sheds illuminating light on key issues such as women's rights, education and healthcare.
