Chelsea Clinton is slated to publish or collaborate on 10 new chapter books and a picture book in 2022 as part of her popular "She Persisted" children's series, according to Philomel Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

The big picture: The picture book — "She Persisted in Science: Brilliant Women Who Made a Difference," set to come out March 1 — will honor Florence Nightingale, Jane Goodall, Greta Thunberg and other pioneering women, per AP.

  • The subsequent chapter books include works on Coretta Scott King, Maya Lin, Malala Yousafzai and Temple Grandin, and will be written by authors including Kelly Starling Lyons and Tae Keller.
  • Clinton will work with illustrators Alexandra Boiger and Gillian Flint on the books.
A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.

What she's saying: "It’s always the right time to share inspirational stories about women who have persisted in science, and 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," Clinton said in a statement, per AP.

  • "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."

Book publishers caught in Biden administration's antitrust crosshairs

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

The Department of Justice filed suit on Tuesday to prevent Penguin Random House — a subsidiary of German publishing giant Bertelsmann — from acquiring rival publisher Simon & Schuster.

Why it matters: This isn't a standard anti-monopoly case. Quite the opposite, in fact: It's an anti-monopsony case, which shows that the DOJ — and the Biden administration more broadly — is willing to push the envelope of antitrust enforcement.

The Robinhood M&A rumor mill churns

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

Robinhood's valuation is now just over $11 billion, a fraction of where it traded in August and below that of its last private round of funding. Cue the M&A mongers.

Why it matters: It's not just Robinhood—falling values of growth-oriented tech stocks have raised speculation that formerly high-flying fintechs could be snapped up by more well-capitalized buyers.
