Malala will release her’most personal’ book.
Malala Yousafzai, who won the Nobel Peace Prize and works to improve education, has said that she is writing her next book, which will be her “most personal book yet.”
She told people about it on Monday through her public social media accounts. She said, “I’m thrilled to tell you that I’m working on my next book.”
The young activist is known for her 2013 book, I Am Malala, which has sold millions of copies all over the world.
Malala said in her announcement that the last few years of her life had been full of “extraordinary change” that included “finding independence, partnership, and ultimately, myself.”
The activist has a degree in philosophy, politics, and economics from Oxford University. She is married to Asser Malik, who works as a general manager for the Pakistan Cricket Board.
The Nobel Prize winner said that in October, it will have been ten years since her first book came out, shortly after she turned 16.
She said, “I’m excited to talk about what’s happened since then and take the next step in my journey with the amazing teams at Atria Books in the US, Weidenfeld & Nicolson in the UK, and soon more countries.”
In 2014, Malala was the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Malala’s Magic Pencil, a children’s book illustrated by Sebastien Cosset and Marie Pommepuy, came out in 2017 with Puffin. In 2018, We Are Displaced, a book about the stories of refugees, came out with Weidenfeld & Nicolson.
This year, she became the executive director of the documentary film Stranger at the Gate, which is up for an Oscar.
