Book Deal: Sirens of the Southern Seas by Sam Maggs & Kendra Wells
Writer Sam Maggs and illustrator Kendra Wells are teaming up to create Sirens of the Southern Seas with Amulet Books (Abrams). This middle grade graphic novel was acquired by Charlotte Greenbaum.
Think you know everything there is to know about the pirates of the Caribbean? Think again. Meet Anne Bonny, a sixteen-year-old girl who decides to throw expectation to the wind and set sail on her own. Pretty remarkable, considering we’re talking about the year 1715.
Full of secrecy, sass, sorcery, and swordplay, Sirens of the Southern Seas is a fictionalized graphic novel inspired by two very real, queer, female pirates and the rest of their crew.
