A congrats is in order for Maddie Ziegler!
The 13-year-old dancer is set to release multiple books via Gallery Books and Aladdin, an imprint of Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Publishing.
First, Maddie will write a memoir titled The Maddie Diaries for a March 2017 release.
In the uplifting memoir, Maddie will discuss her rise to stardom and how she has managed to keep her balance along the way.
Then she will also publish a trilogy for middle grade readers with Aladdin Books. The first title in the series will be published in Fall 2017, with books No. 1 and No. 3 to follow in Fall 2018 and Fall 2019, respectively.
The series will follow the journey of a young dancer as she navigates the competitive dance circuit and focuses on friendship and teamwork, while also recognizing the power and positivity of dance in our lives.
“I’m honored to be given the chance to write about my journey,” Maddie said. “My hope is to inspire others to always keep dreaming and push through the hardships because it’s so worth it to find something you are truly passionate about in life. Always be brave enough to live out your dreams.”
We can’t wait to read them!
