Chanel Miller will make her children’s literature debut next year with an illustrated middle-grade novel, the Associated Press reports.

Philomel Books will publish Miller’s Magnolia Wu Unfolds It All next year. The Penguin Random House imprint describes the book as “a fun, funny, and poignant story of friendship and community starring Magnolia Wu, a ten-year-old sock detective bent on returning all the lonely only socks left behind in her parents’ NYC laundromat.”

Miller’s first book, Know My Name, was published by Viking in 2019. The memoir tells the story of her sexual assault by Brock Allen Turner on the Stanford University campus; Turner was convicted of the crime but served only three months in jail.

Miller’s memoir received praise from reviewers; in a starred review, a Kirkus critic called it “a powerful narrative that couldn’t be timelier and deserves the widest possible audience.” It won the 2019 National Book Critics Circle Award for autobiography.

Magnolia Wu Unfolds It Allwill feature Miller’s drawings. Her artwork has appeared in San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum and on an outdoor dining space in Manhattan.

“I crafted these characters because I was longing to move freely through the world with fearless curiosity, to refocus on life’s funny little miraculous moments,” Miller said. “I was craving joy and they helped me find it.”

Magnolia Wu Unfolds It Allis slated for publication on April 23, 2024.
