One of Chelsea Clinton’s favorite books when she was a tween was “50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth.”
Now that the former First Kid has a child of her own, she has written her own book for young people, called “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!”
Aimed at readers ages 10 to 14, the book intends to give a concise view of some of the biggest problems facing the earth, and then offer ways to help. She says the message of “50 Simple Things” was that you are never too young to make a difference, and she tells young people how they can help solve the ills of poverty, homelessness, climate change, habitat loss and many other knotty challenges.
Clinton will be in Atlanta on Thursday, Sept. 17, at three different events , to talk about the book and meet young people. At 11 a.m. she’ll meet with students at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, 1550 Hosea L. Williams Drive NE.
Later that day, at 4:30 p.m. she will visit Zoo Atlanta, 800 Cherokee Avenue SE, which is praised in the book for its conservation efforts.
Finally she’ll appear at a book signing at 6 p.m. at Little Shop of Stories, 133 E Court Square #A, in Decatur.
