Penguin Random House Canada to Publish 2 Books by Sophie Grégoire Trudeau
Penguin Random House Canada announced today that it will publish two books by Sophie Grégoire Trudeau. The first book, which Random House Canada will publish in Spring 2024, is CLOSER TOGETHER: KNOWING OURSELVES, LOVING EACH OTHER, an inspirational wellness book for adults. The book explores the importance of self-knowledge, acceptance, and empowerment for our individual and collective mental health, and encourages building deeper connections through meditation, yoga and movement. Enriched by exclusive interviews with top psychologists, scientists, and thought leaders, CLOSER TOGETHER delves into the science behind brain health, our unique emotional signatures, and features personal stories of the author’s own growth and transformation.
Tundra Book Group, the children’s publishing division of Penguin Random House Canada, will then publish a picture book by Sophie Grégoire Trudeau in 2025. The story will draw on
Sophie’s own experiences as a child as well as her love for the outdoors and her advocacy work in mental health and well-being. The book is intended to encourage kids to be active and to help them find ways to connect to their emotions through interactions with nature.
Sophie Grégoire Trudeau said, “Partnering with Penguin Random House Canada on these two books is the opportunity of a lifetime. I’m honoured to be able to share with readers the knowledge, tools and stories that will help people be better equipped to deal with their own emotions and the obstacles that they face in their daily lives. And in sharing part of my own mental health well-being journey, it’s my sincere hope that it will help encourage others to see how deeply connected we all are as human beings.”
Kristin Cochrane, CEO of Penguin Random House Canada, said: “We are thrilled to become the publishing home for Sophie Grégoire Trudeau. I’ve long admired Sophie for her work as an engaged and passionate advocate for mental, emotional, and physical health and a champion for gender equality. We are committed to supporting and expanding Sophie’s incredibly important work in these areas and we are honoured to be in partnership to ensure CLOSER TOGETHER reaches the widest possible readership.”
