Trending Now


Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o released her first children’s book in 2019, and Sulwe quickly rose to #1 New York Times bestselling children’s book fame. Now, the author is back with a new special project.

It’s been announced that Nyong’o will narrate the audiobook edition of Sulwe, to go on sale Feb. 23. The story follows five-year-old Sulwe who goes on a magical journey in the night sky that opens her eyes to her own beauty.

Nyong’o shares, “I’m thrilled to share Sulwe with readers in a new way. It was exciting for me to record the audiobook myself for listeners to get to hear the voices of Sulwe, her family, and the magical world of Night and Day as I hear them in my mind. I hope families will enjoy listening together and that it sparks conversations about what makes each of us uniquely beautiful.”

Inspired by Nyong’o’s own experiences with colorism and self-esteem, the audio book will also includes music influenced by Nyong’o’s Kenyan heritage. You can purchase the audiobook when it releases on Feb. 23 on Amazon for $6.13.
