    Here’s some exciting Monday book news: HarperOne has purchased the world rights to Ijeoma Oluo’s nonfiction title Be a Revolution.

    Oluo is the author of the bestselling books So You Want to Talk About Race, a user-friendly introduction to engaging with race in America, and the December 2020 title Mediocre, a history of white male American identity and its consequences; she marries deep scholarship with storytelling and humor.

    Be a Revolution will take us back to the present: according to HarperOne, Be a Revolution will “show how people and communities are working to create real systemic change—in areas like education, media, science, health, housing, and agriculture—with the goal of achieving intersectional racial equity.”

    That’s all we know for now, but it’s already exciting. While we wait for more details, you can read Lit Hub’s profile of Oluo by Jasmine J. Mahmoud.
