AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER will be the Companion Book to the Forthcoming Documentary
NEW YORK, NY (January 19, 2017) — Rodale Inc., a global health and wellness content company, announced today the acquisition of AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER by former Vice President Al Gore. Rodale Books Vice President and Editorial Director Jennifer Levesque acquired U.S./Canada/Open Market book rights in a deal with Andrew Wylie of the Wylie Agency, with publication set for 2017, and will release nationwide timed with the film by the same name.
AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER is the highly anticipated follow-up to the groundbreaking #1 New York Times bestseller An Inconvenient Truth and will also tie in with a documentary of the same name. AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL, the film, will open the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on Thursday, January 19. The book and film follow Vice President Gore as he continues his decades-long mission to build a more sustainable future for our planet.
Vice President Gore said, “Solutions to the climate crisis are at hand; it is the time to rededicate ourselves to climate action. It is vital that we use every platform possible to spread Truth to Power, which is why I am so pleased to once again be working with Rodale Books, on a companion book to An Inconvenient Sequel. Rodale’s more than 80 years of dedication to the health and wellness of our planet and its people makes them the ideal partner for this project.”
CEO and Chairman of Rodale Inc. Maria Rodale said, “We are incredibly proud and honored to be publishing Vice President Al Gore once again, and the need for AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL is urgent. The companion book will serve as a vital tool for amplifying the call to action and ensuring that readers share this important message with their friends, families, and communities.”
AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL will recount and contextualize the critical issues and moments in the climate change movement since the release of An Inconvenient Truth more than 10 years ago while highlighting the real solutions we have at hand. AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL follows Vice President Gore as he travels the globe, gathering cutting-edge research from top scientists around the world to offer both nations and individuals solutions to reversing the damage as we move forward. As with the first book, Melcher Media and Rodale Books will create a visually stunning package that will articulate and enhance the subject matter, making this a must-have for anyone who cares about the future of our planet.
