In these uncertain and troubling times, one thing we are all looking to hold onto are strong, true facts. And when you find someone who can package and deliver those facts in an appealing, engaging, accurate way—well, you hang on tight and you don’t let them go.
So maybe that’s why stellar author and science professional Sara Levine received an inquiry into her Inbox a few months ago. “How would you feel about writing book on germs?” Well, the answer to that question is the latest deal listing in Publishers Weekly:
Carol Hinz at Lerner/Millbrook has acquired Germs Up Close by Sara Levine, which brings together accessible text and eye-catching micrographs showing germs that cause various illnesses--including COVID-19. Additionally, the book includes key information about the immune system, vaccines, and ways we can all stay healthy. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author in the deal for world rights. Publication will be in spring 2021.
Congratulations, Sara! And we’re all awfully glad we won’t have to wait very long for this timely and essential book.
