Miranda prepares picture book
Lin-Manuel Miranda is working on a picture book that he hopes will inspire young people. Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You will be published Oct. 23, Random House says. It will be illustrated by Calgary native Jonny Sun and feature “affirmations” the Hamilton playwright has posted on Twitter over the years. Random House calls it a “touchstone” for those in need of “a lift.” A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charitable organizations for education, literacy and other initiatives.
