Susan Cain Lands Deal With Penguin Young Readers Group

Susan CainSusan Cain (pictured, via) will pen a children’s book edition of her hit nonfiction title, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can’t Stop Talking. Dial Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group, will release Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, in May 2015.

Here’s more from the press release: “The original book focused on the workplace and on advice for parents, and Susan realized that a version for kids was also badly needed. In this book, kids will be able to read about their own sphere—school, extracurriculars, family life, and friendship. They’ll read about actual kids who have tackled the challenges of not being extroverted and who have made a mark in their own quiet way.”

Publisher Lauri Hornik negotiated the deal with Inkwell Management literary agent Richard Pine. The new project will feature comic-style illustrations from artist Grant Snider. Snider drew inspiration from Cain’s popular TED talk, “ The Power of Introverts“, to create his own web comic, “We Are The Introverts.”
