ROOKIE YEARBOOK TWO: The Awesomeness Continues
We're totally in awe of Tavi Gevinson. When she was 14 she founded RookieMag.com, an independent online magazine made by and for teenage girls. Full of personal essays, advice about style, sex, friends and school, gorgeous photo albums (lots of fashion, natch), it's no wonder that it hit one million page views just six days after its debut! Since then, Rookie's contributors and interviewees have grown to include prominent popular culture fixtures such as Joss Whedon, Miranda July, Jon Hamm, Zooey Deschanel, David Sedaris, John Waters, Dan Savage, and Ira Glass, to name a few. No wonder Rookie now averages 1.2 million visits per month (and counting) and has 205,000 Tumblr followers!
Last year's ROOKIE YEARBOOK ONE is like a greatest hits album full of amazing stuff—honest articles, fashion shoot photos, and glittery teen world gems (ie: stickers!). There was so much awesomeness that clearly another book needed to be made.
Enter ROOKIE YEARBOOK TWO, available now from Drawn & Quarterly. This sophomore collection is just stunning as the first, and filled with even more exclusive content, such as contributions from Judy Blume, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Morrisey, Emma Watson, Molly Ringwald, Carrie Brownstein, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Of course, there's also more advice, tons of pics, and lots of humor and pathos. In other words, everything a teenage girl thinks and cares about.
The Rookie yearbooks are perfect for your teen readers, and for parents and adults who want to understand more about young adults today. We wish Rookie had been around when we were teenagers!
Nonfiction Naked with guest Rob Kirkpatrick.
Hi there. I’m Rob Kirkpatrick, Senior Editor with the Thomas Dunne Books imprint at St. Martin’s Press. I came to the Macmillan family with a wide variety of publishing experience, including four years at Greenwood Publishing, when I had the chance to meet a number of public and academic librarians and talk with them about the needs and interests of their patrons.
