Munroe Bergdorf’s Six-Figure Book Deal: Today In Books

Munroe Bergdorf’s Six-Figure Book Deal

Munroe Bergdorf’s manifesto went to Bloomsbury, to be published in 2021, after an 11-publishers bidding war! Transitional will explore adolescence, sexuality, gender, relationships, identity and race. As explained by the English activist and model, “The trans experience, she said, is ‘thought of by a lot of people as this far-off idea that isn’t that relatable. I wanted to drive home the fact that we all transition in one way or another. None of us stays the same. We’re all on a journey, and a transition with regards to gender is just one of many we all experience as human beings.’”


The Tiger’s Apprentice by Laurence Yep is being adapted into an animated film and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) will voice Mr. Hu, the magical talking, shape-shifting tiger. While we wait you can check out the trilogy of books about a young boy in San Francisco who becomes Mr. Hu’s apprentice because he’ll be the next guardian of a magical phoenix.
