Lupita Nyong’o writes a children’s book

Lupita Nyong’o has written a children’s book.

The ’12 Years A Slave’ star took to Facebook to reveal she has written a book.

She said: “I am pleased to reveal I have written a children’s book!

It’s called “Sulwe”! Sulwe is a dark skinned girl who goes on a starry-eyed adventure, and awakens with a reimagined sense of beauty.

She encounters lessons that we learn as children and spend our lives unlearning.

This is a story for little ones, but no matter the age I hope it serves as an inspiration for everyone to walk with joy in your own skin.

Coming January 2019!!”
