Clinton To Publish New Book in September

PW Daily reports that former President Bill Clinton‘s next book, GIVING: How of Each of Us Can Change the World, will be published on September 4 by Knopf. The 256-page manuscript – much shorter than his nearly 1,000-page memoir, also published by Knopf – was acquired by the imprint’s chairman and editor-in-chief Sonny Mehta, and the book will be simultaneously published in hardcover, ebook, audiobook (read by the author) and large print, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to charity.

“I’ve done my best in this book to demonstrate what I’ve seen firsthand through my Foundation’s work in Africa and around the world: that all kinds of giving can make a profoundly positive difference,” Clinton said in a release. “The amount of good that so many individuals and NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) have been able to do has proven to me that almost everyone-regardless of income, available time, age, and skills-can do something useful for others and, in the process, strengthen the fabric of our shared humanity.”
