Flatiron Books to Publish Melinda Gates

New York, NY – WEBWIRE

Flatiron Books’ President Bob Miller and Publisher Amy Einhorn announced today that the imprint has acquired World English and translation rights for a book by Melinda Gates. WALKING EACH OTHER HOME: How to Empower Women and Change the World will be published in April 2019. The book was acquired and will be edited by Macmillan Executive Vice President Will Schwalbe.

In this candid and inspiring book, Gates traces her awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the well-being of societies. She shows some of the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to accelerate change. And she provides simple and effective ways each one of us can make a difference.

Of the acquisition, Bob Miller says: “Melinda Gates’s extraordinary work has helped improve the lives of women and families around the world. We’re honored to publish this important book, which couldn’t be more timely—or more needed.”

Co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest private foundation in the world, Melinda Gates has dedicated her life to achieving transformational improvements in the health and prosperity of families, communities, and societies. Core to her work is empowering women and girls to help them realize their full potential. In 2015, Melinda created Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company that enables her to bring together other new and emerging strands of her advocacy and philanthropic work focused in the US. Melinda received a bachelor’s degree from Duke and an MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School. After joining Microsoft Corp. in 1987, she helped develop many of the company’s multimedia products. In 1996, Melinda left Microsoft to focus on her philanthropic work and family.
