With a 2022 debut date, Nicola and David Yoon, the best-selling author of Frankly in Love, plan to introduce Joy Revolution, an imprint dedicated to publishing young adult love stories written by and centering around people of color. Publishers Weekly broke the news on Thursday afternoon.
According to the literary publication, Joy Revolution will be overseen by Wendy Loggia, author and senior executive editor at Delacorte Press. The Yoons plan to partner with a Delacorte editor who has yet to be hired to acquire works for the imprint and shape its roster.
Nicola’s books will continue to publish under Penguin Random House imprint Delacorte Press and David’s under G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers.
