Knights Of will this autumn publish a verse novel about the pursuit of personal dreams by US author Jason Reynolds, in association with 404 Ink.
For Every One will be the second book from Knights Of, which launched in 2017 to publish inclusive titles. The company has hired London-based artist Yinka Ilori to illustrate the book, which will be published on 4th October.
Publisher Aimée Felone said: “I have been a fan of Jason from the beginning and couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to publish For Every One. It speaks to everything that we do and Jason himself is such an important voice that challenges what a writer and reader “ought to look like”. We are overjoyed to have him on the list.”
Reynolds is is the author of several books, including the Track series, Boy in the Black Suit and Long Way Down, which was published by Faber Children’s. He will tour the UK in November.
The 404 Ink team will work with Knights Of to bring Jason to Edinburgh as part of a UK tour in November and will sell copies of the book directly to customers via their website.
