New York, NY—October 24
Mauro DiPreta, VP and Publisher of Hachette Books, announced today that Hachette Books will publish three forthcoming books by New York Times bestselling author and co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Mika Brzezinski. World rights were previously acquired by Amanda Murray under the discontinued Weinstein Books imprint for KNOWING YOUR VALUE, now slated for publication in September 2018, with COMEBACK CAREERS and THE MILLENNIAL CHALLENGE—two additional titles in the Know Your Value series—to follow in Spring 2019. Each of the three books will be available in hardcover and eBook, with an audio edition from Hachette Audio.
KNOWING YOUR VALUE will be a fully revised and expanded edition of Brzezinski’s New York Times bestselling book Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You’re Worth. The book features advice from major female voices such as Sheryl Sandberg, Elizabeth Warren, Valerie Jarrett, Joy Behar, Melody Barnes and others, and will be updated throughout with new statistics, fresh interviews, and thoughtful commentary about the importance of knowing your value in personal relationships.
The book also inspired “Know Your Value,” a nationwide movement founded in 2014 that features a media platform and event series dedicated to empowering women to grow their personal and professional value. After sold-out conferences across the United States, “Know Your Value” returns to New York City for a full-day event on October 30, 2017.
COMEBACK CAREERS, a handbook for women re-entering the workforce, will be written with co-author Ginny Brzezinski. THE MILLENNIAL CHALLENGE, a guide for women just entering the workforce, will be co-authored by Daniela Pierre-Bravo.
Mika Brzezinski says, “I’m proud to be partnering with Hachette—a company that’s 70% women—to continue spreading the ‘Know Your Value’ message. I’m pleased to continue this book deal to help empower more people to communicate their value effectively and improve workplaces across the country, because there’s so much more work to be done on behalf of women everywhere.”
And about publishing Brzezinski’s books, Mauro DiPreta says, “We are thrilled to be working with Mika, who is at the forefront of the important issues she writes about in these books. Her insight, candor, and intelligence are critical, especially in the current climate.”
