Chelsea Clinton writes children's book, 'She Persisted'

Associated Press logo Associated Press 3/16/2017

NEW YORK (AP) — Chelsea Clinton has written a children's book, with a sharply worded title.

The book is called "She Persisted" and comes out May 30, Penguin Young Readers announced Thursday. Clinton will honor 13 American women "who never take no for an answer," including Harriet Tubman, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey. "She Persisted" will also feature a "special" and unidentified cameo, presumably Clinton's mother, Hillary Clinton. The book will be illustrated by Alexandra Boiger.

The title refers to a comment by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after his silencing of Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a debate in February about the confirmation of attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions. Clinton said in a statement that her book was a tribute to women who have been "told to quiet down."
