Lupita Nyong’o reveals cover of her children’s book, Sulwe


Rich Fury/FilmMagicAfter scaring moviegoers in Jordan Peele’s new horror movie Us, Lupita Nyong’o now has a story appropriate for her young fans: Her first children’s book, titled Sulwe.

The Oscar-winning actress revealed the cover in an Instagram post, commenting. “I wrote a book! It’s called #Sulwe! This is the cover! I’m thrilled to share it with you.”

Lupita added. “I wrote #Sulwe to encourage children (and everyone really!) to love the skin they are in and see the beauty that radiates from within.”

In a previous post, she explained the plot of the book: “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.”

She added, “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 their own skin.“

Sulwe will be published on October 1 and is now available for pre-order on the publisher’s website.

As she adds “author” to her resume, Black Panther actress will reprise her role as Maz Kanata in Star Wars: Episode IX, opening in December.
