Chelsea Clinton is planning a full year series of her children’s book “She Persisted.”

Philomel Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House, said on Twitter that another picture book and 10 new chapter books about women in history will be released in 2022.

The picture book, “She Persisted in Science: Brilliant Women Who Made a Difference” will be released March 1.

Clinton will also release chapter books throughout 2022 about different influential women and activists. These books will be written by 10 different authors.

The first biography will be about Coretta Scott King, activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., and will be released in January.

The series will also feature a biography about education activist Malala Yousafzai to be released in July, as well as one about former first lady Rosalind Franklin that will be released in December.

The books will feature art by Alexandra Boiger and Gillian Flint.

The series was first reported by The Associated Press.

Clinton told the news outlet in a statement that it feels “particularly important now to shine a light on women scientists and their contributions to our shared public health, the fight against climate change, and so much more.”

“I’m also honored to partner with ten brilliant writers, along with Alexandra Boiger and artist Gillian Flint, to continue the ‘She Persisted’ chapter book series. Together we’ll share in-depth stories about ten more inspirational woman who show young readers that they can dream big, persist, and make a big difference,” Clinton said.

The “She Persisted” series was first launched in 2017, and currently includes “She persisted,” “She Persisted Around the World” and “She Persisted in Sports.”
