Simon & Schuster To Publish a Children's Picture Book About Kamala Harris


Just over a week after Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was named Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, publisher Simon & Schuster is announcing the publication of a new children’s picture book about her life.

The publisher announced on Wednesday that it will release a new children’s book, “Kamala Harris, Rooted in Justice,” which will tell the “incredible story of a young daughter of immigrants who would grow up to defend the rights of people everywhere and be named the Democratic vice presidential candidate.”

The book is scheduled to be published on August 25. It is written by Nikki Grimes and features illustrations by Laura Freeman.

“This picture book biography brings to life a story that shows all young people that the American dream can belong to all of us if we fight for one another,” the publisher said in its announcement. 

Harris is scheduled to speak on Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention. In her speech, Harris is expected to make a forceful case against President Donald Trump
