They say “truth is stranger than fiction” – and to that I would add that quite often, it’s way cooler, too. If you don’t believe me, get a look at this *incredible* new book of MG non-fiction that is on its way to a bookshelf near you:

Holly West at Feiwel and Friends has acquired world rights to Anna Crowley Redding’s cutting-edge middle-grade nonfiction BLACK HOLE CHASERS, following a team of scientists who forge an unprecedented global collaboration to see the unseeable—a black hole––for the very first time in history. Exclusive access and reporting showcases how the team’s persistence, problem-solving and tolerance for repeated failure led to one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of our time, and gives a glimpse of what is next for this boundary-pushing team as they continue exploring the cosmos. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for World rights. Publication will be in spring 2021.

What more is there to say? This is a real-time, riveting, nail-biter of an adventure – with on-the-front reporting and all the inside scoop. Mark your bookshelves for early next year, folks! This is one you don’t want to miss.

Huge congratulations, Anna!!
