El Nuevo Día reports that Lin-Manuel Miranda is working on an illustrated book with which he hopes to inspire children. Random House recently announced that it will publish Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You this fall; it will be released on October 23, 2018.
The book will be illustrated by Jonny Su—an artist and humorist whose debut book Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too was released last year. It will include pep talks and affirmations that Miranda, creator of the Broadway musical Hamilton, has posted on Twitter over the years.
Random House calls the book a “cornerstone” for those who need uplifting encouragement. According to El Nuevo Día, a portion of the profits will go to organizations for the benefit of education, literacy, and other initiatives.
