Politician Stacey Abrams and actress/activist Angelina Jolie haven’t retired their keyboards yet — both are publishing new books next year.
Abrams, who has written romance novels under the name Selena Montgomery and a memoir under her own name, will branch out into a new genre.
While Justice Sleeps is a Supreme Court thriller that she began writing a decade ago; it will come out May 25, 2021, according to the Associated Press.
Jolie’s book, meanwhile, appears to be the same one teased in 2019, though we now have a title and release date.
Know Your Rights (And Claim Them) is a collaboration with Amnesty International that highlights the rights contained in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, using real-life accounts of child activists to illustrate those rights.
The book targets teenagers and will come out in September 2021; more commentary from its contributors is available on Amnesty International's website.
Jolie previously wrote Notes from My Travels: Visits with Refugees in Africa, Cambodia, Pakistan and Ecuador.
