Chelsea Clinton

NEW ORLEANS – Chelsea Clinton is in New Orleans today, Tuesday, October 13, 2015, to promote her new book “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going.”

         She will visit Lusher Charter School, 5624 Freret St., at 12:30 p.m. for a presentation and a Q&A session with students.

         At 5:30 p.m., Clinton will be signing copies of her book, aimed at readers ages 10-14, at independent bookstore Octavia Books, 513 Octavia St.

         Reservations are required to attend the book-signing event.

         Each ticket may be exchanged for one copy of “It’s Your World” at the event where it will be signed by Clinton. One signing ticket admits up to 4 family members. Only books purchased through Octavia Books will be signed.

         Clinton breaks down some of the world’s biggest challenges and shares inspiring stories of young people who are already making an impact in their own communities and around the globe in “It’s Your World.”

         Clinton combines facts, charts, photographs and stories to give readers a deep understanding of the world around them—and how anyone can make a difference. With stories about children and teens who have made real changes big and small, Clinton said her book will inspire readers of all ages to do their part to make our world a better place.

         “In ‘It’s Your World,’ I try to explain what I think are some of the biggest challenges facing our world today, particularly for young people. I also explore some of the solutions to those challenges and share stories of inspiring kids and teenagers doing amazing work to help people and our planet have brighter and healthier futures. My hope is that the book will inspire readers to realize that they can start making a difference now, in their own way, for their family, their community, and our world,” Clinton said.

        In addition to informing and inspiring readers about topics including poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, access to education, gender equality, epidemics, non-communicable diseases, climate change and endangered species, Clinton said she shows readers that the world belongs to every single one of us, and every one of us counts.

         When Clinton was a child in Little Rock, AR, one of her favorite books was “50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth,” and as a teenager in Washington, D.C., she led her school’s service club. While at Stanford, Clinton worked as a reading and writing tutor and volunteered at the Children’s Hospital. Today, she is Vice Chair of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation where she helps lead the work of the Foundation across its various initiatives, with a particular focus on work related to health, women and girls, creating service opportunities, and empowering the next generation of leaders.

         Clinton holds a BA from Stanford University, an MPH from Columbia University, and an MPhil and doctorate degree in international relations from Oxford University. She lives in New York City with her husband Marc, their daughter Charlotte, and their dog Soren.
