    #1000BlackGirlBooks Founder Marley Dias Gets Book Deal

    " Marley Dias, the young founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, just snagged her first book deal.

    Dias will be the author and main character of her very own book via renowned global children's publishing company, Scholastic.

    "In her forthcoming nonfiction book for ages 10 and up, Marley Dias, the powerhouse girl-wonder who started the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign, shows kids how to make their own dreams come true. In this accessible "keep-it-real" guide, Marley tells how she's turned her passion into a literacy crusade that has captured the attention of the media, policymakers, and young people throughout the world," said the Scholastic announcement.

    The book is scheduled to release in the spring of 2018. Dias said she is excited to be doing a book with her new partner. "
