Bernie Sanders has been a mayor, a congressman, a senator and an almost-upset presidential nominee. Soon he’ll add “young adult nonfiction author” to that resume.
Sanders’ next book, “Our Revolution,” is being adapted for teenagers and being pitched to booksellers as a high school graduation gift.
The young adult version of the book, which is not yet titled, will come out in April 2017, according to the publisher, Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. The publisher shared details about the book project with CNNMoney on Wednesday.
Policy-oriented books are de rigueur for politicians. But they’re usually written for adult readers and read only by devoted supporters and policy wonks.
Sanders is doing something unusual by targeting the teenage market. The book will be written for 12- to 18-year-olds. The list price will be $17, $10 less than the edition for adults.
