On the Books: Ted Cruz will publish a book in June

Posted on

HarperCollins announced that potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz will be releasing a book on June 30. A Time For Truth: Reigniting the Miracle of America will include stories about people who “had the courage” to speak out at personal risk, including Elie Wiesel and Anwar Sadat, Cruz told The Associated Press. The Texas senator also said the book touches on his potential White House candidacy and a counterargument to the “cariactures” of the right as “stupid,” “evil,” or “crazy.” (Washington Times)

Thursday is World Book Day, a literary holiday that is celebrated more in the U.K. than in the United States. But, to the excitement of J.K. Rowling fans everywhere, the British author tweeted that she is “celebrating by writing a book.” Rowling didn’t elaborate on her cryptic tweet, but that didn’t stop fans from reacting. The tweet has already been retweeted more than 5,000 times with more than 8,000 favorites as well. The beloved author tweeted that she was working on a new novel in October, but this is the first fans have heard of any new work since. (New York Daily News)

In other World Book Day news, children are dressing up as their favorite book characters, but one very popular costume has stirred a bit of frustration amongst some: Elsa from Frozen. Why? “THAT’S NOT A BOOK,” tweeted an annoyed World Book Day celebrator. The Telegraph rounded up tweets from those who decided to use social media to express their frustration with the Frozen mix-up. The Telegraph and another U.K. outlet, Metro, put together a collection of some of the best costumes proud parents have posted of their children. Some are pretty awesome. (The Telegraph, Metro)
