Book Announcement: Collaboration with ChinaAid Founder Bob Fu

Former U.S. President George W. Bush sits between Syrian activist Ammar Abdulhamid (L) and Chinese activist Bob Fu (2nd R) during an event celebrating human freedom around the world, in Washington May 15, 2012. At right is former first lady Laura Bush. The event was hosted by the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

I’ve waited to tell you guys about this, and I can since Publishers Weekly broke the news!  I have a new book deal with an amazing human rights activist, Bob Fu.  He’s been described as the “Martin Luther King” of China, and I’m honored to help him tell his story.  Here is the Publishers Weekly announcement:

Baker Lands Fu Book
Bob Fu, the activist and founder of the nonprofit China Aid, has sold his story in a major deal to Baker Books, in Michigan. Agent Chris Park, at Foundry Literary + Media, handled the six-figure world rights deal for Fu, who drew headlines this year for his role in bringing blind dissident Chen Guangcheng to the States. Park said “aggressive bids” came in from numerous houses—Baker is a Christian publisher and a division of Baker Publishing Group—and the book is set for a November 2013 release. Park added that Fu has long been a behind-the-scenes operator in China, fighting for religious and political freedom, but with Chen Guangcheng’s situation, he landed in the spotlight. Bestselling author Nancy French will be writing the book, which Park called “part memoir, part current affairs,” with Fu.

While you are learning more about Bob Fu, go ahead and “like” and “follow” ChinaAid and “like” and “follow” Baker Publishing Group.  And while you’re at it, follow Bob on Twitter as well, but you might not always know what he’s writing about!  His tweets are mostly in Chinese:

No worries.  The book will be out in next year!  I’ll keep you posted about all of the book’s updates and developments.  In the meantime, I’ve got a book to write, and thank you all for being so supportive of my writing projects.

This will be a good one!

    Nancy, I’m so excited for you and for all of us! I will be among the first in line for your new book.

    Congratulations, Nancy. That’s great news. Keep up the good work!

  • Nancy French

    Thanks!! I’m so thrilled to help tell his story… He’s AMAZING.

    Can’t wait to read this book! It seems that Bob Fu can tell us far more about inside China, than the regular media can. While the economic side of China is constantly covered, the political storms inside China have disappeared from the western press. Thank you Sarah and Nancy for making this important project possible!
    Best Wishes,
