Best-Selling Author Maria Shriver Announces a New Book Imprint
Maria Shriver, the Emmy Award-winning journalist and bestselling author of I've Been Thinking... announced today that she is partnering with Penguin Life to launch her own book imprint. The Open Field, as the imprint will be called, will publish books "that seek to inform, ignite, inspire, and move humanity forward one person at a time," Shriver tells OprahMag.com exclusively. They will have the mission and purpose "of challenging readers to expand their minds in the quest for peace and compassion."
Brian Tart, the President and Publisher of Penguin Life who has worked with Shriver on past books, says the imprint will publish roughly three books per year. Shriver has signed the first two: The Call to Unite: Voices of Hope and Awakening, an anthology compiled by Tim Shriver and Tom Rosshirt (out March 16), whose contributors include Oprah Winfrey, T.D. Jakes, Arianna Huffington, and Elizabeth Gilbert; and The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self by Martha Beck (out April 13).
