Make Me a World | Fall 2019

Book Deals: Week of February 19, 2018 (Publisher's Weekly)

"Christopher Myers acquired the young adult novel Pet by Akwaeke Emezi for his Make Me a World imprint, in partnership with Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers. Emezi’s first adult novel, Freshwater, was released last week by Grove. Jacqueline Ko at the Wylie Agency negotiated the Pet deal for U.S./Canadian rights. Pet, the publisher said, is about “finding monsters in a world that claims they don’t exist anymore.” Specifically, it follows “a teen who frees a creature from her mother’s painting.” Publication is set for fall 2019."
