COMPLIMENTARY “MOCKTAILS” WILL BE SERVED
Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers will release the first young adult fantasy novel from international entertainment and media icon Tyra Banks. In support of this new accomplishment, Tyra – who is also the creator and co-host of “America’s Next Top Model,” a two-time Emmy-award-winner and one of the world’s most successful models-will make live appearances in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Miami in support of Modelland.
Tyra invested five years in conceiving and writing her first book of fiction, “Modelland” which is the first in a series of three; her lifelong love of reading and storytelling is deeply embedded in every page and her commitment to empowering girls is every present. The book, which is for young adult readers ages 12 and up, tells the story of Tookie De La Crème, a 15-year-old aspiring model who receives an unexpected invitation to Modelland—an exclusive, mysterious place on top of a mountain. Thrown into a world where she doesn’t belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers –if she survives.
