Randi Zuckerberg, the CEO of Zuckerberg Media and sister to the Facebook founder, will publish a kid’s book about a little girl who spends too much time on mobile devices.
HarperCollins Children’s Books has released a trailer for the book (embedded above). Dot. will come out on November 5th, and was illustrated by Joe Berger. Check it out:
She’s a spunky little girl obsessed with electronic devices. Dot knows a lot. She knows how to tap… to swipe… to share… and she pays little attention to anything else, until one day Dot sets off on an interactive adventure with the world surrounding her. Dot’s tech-savvy expertise, mingled with her resourceful imagination, proves Dot really does know lots and lots.
Randi Zuckerberg will also publish Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives with HarperCollins in November, looking at some of the same themes for adults. Here’s more about the author:
Zuckerberg is the CEO and founder of Zuckerberg Media, a tech savvy production company, and editor-in-chief of Dot Complicated, a modern lifestyle community and blog. She was an early employee of Facebook where she pioneered live streaming initiatives and struck groundbreaking deals with ABC and CNN. She has been nominated for an Emmy and is ranked among the “50 Digital Power Players” by the Hollywood Reporter.
