Celadon Books to Publish Memoir By Global Conservation Icon, Jane Goodall

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York—February 20, 2020

Celadon Books, a division of Macmillan Publishers, announced today the acquisition of THE BOOK OF HOPE by global icon, Dr. Jane Goodall in collaboration with Doug Abrams, co-author of international bestseller, The Book of Joy. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Jane’s pioneering research, The Book of Hope shows how, even in the face of great adversity, hope can be found in human nature and in nature itself.

President and Publisher, Jamie Raab, acquired the book from Douglas Abrams of Idea Architects and Adrian Sington at Kruger Cowne on behalf of Dr. Jane Goodall. Of the acquisition, Jamie Raab adds, “Jane Goodall is a treasure. This book is a call for hope in a time when it is sorely needed, and I am thrilled to be working with Jane once again.”

Beyond Dr. Goodall's lifelong work in conservation, The Book of Hope will serve as an extraordinary exploration of our very nature as human beings and offer a compelling path forward to create hope in our own lives and in the world. Through both Jane's observation and the latest scientific research, readers will experience the resilience of nature to recover from the harm we have inflicted and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of loss and devastation.

The book is scheduled for release in Fall 2021.
