Rookie: Yearbook One is the first book-length anthology of Rookie magazine, spun out of Style Rookie.
Rookie: Yearbook One is a beautifully produced book, with lots of fun bonuses bound into it (including a flexidisc!). Ira Glass is a kind of mentor to Gevinson, and if you like his work, you'll recognize his influence on her's. But despite all the heavy hitting adults in her orbit, Gevinson's editorial direction is clearly of her own making. This is the kind of magazine I dream of giving to my own daughter some day. The anthology is the perfect gift for the smart young women in your life.
Angelenos can meet Gevinson and friends at a series of events next week, on November 9-10.

About the AuthorI write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
