Lin-Manuel Miranda announced via Twitter—of course—that a book of his daily daily “Gmorning” and “Gnight” tweets would be published by Random House. Gmorning, Gnight: Little Pep Talks from Me to You will go on sale October 16. (This is a change from the previously announced October 23.)
Even before Hamilton hit Broadway, the Tony, Pulitzer Prize, and Olivier Award winner used his platform to send inspiration into the world in 140 characters. Miranda has culled the best of these tweets for the book, illustrated by Jonny Sun.
Best known to theatre fans as the creator and leading actor of the Tony-winning works Hamilton and In The Heights, Miranda has also written the score for Bring It On: The Musical and songs for Disney’s animated feature Moana—the latter which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song for “How Far I’ll Go.” He is set to star in Disney's upcoming Mary Poppins Returns, arriving in movie theatres in December.
Miranda also has a number of additional projects in the works, including a television adaptation of Kingkiller Chronicles for Showtime.
