Climate activist Greta Thunberg was revealed as TIME magazine's 2019 Person of the Year this morning.
The sixteen-year-old Swede is the youngest person to ever receive the honor.
You may know her for the school strikes she’s organized, marches she’s inspired, and dressing-downs she’s delivered to world leaders for not taking the climate crisis seriously enough.
But she’s also a published author, with No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference — a collection of her speeches — having been released earlier this year.
The Guardian described the book as “sobering but tentatively hopeful.”
It’s a bestseller on both Amazon and the New York Times list and has landed on several best-of lists for the year.
Thunberg will release another nonfiction work next year; Our House Is On Fire is a family memoir that goes back before Thunberg gained worldwide fame.
Proceeds from both books benefit charities.
And, naturally, Thunberg has herself inspired other books, a collection of which you can browse on Publishers Weekly.
