LOS ANGELES, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, creators of global bestseller book Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls, are launching a new Kickstarter campaign to bring to life Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls 2 and Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls – The Podcast.
The campaign is part of Kickstarter Gold, the initiative launched by crowd-funding platform Kickstarter to mark over $1M pledged to repeat independent creators. "Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls is the most-funded Publishing campaign of all time", says Director of Publishing at Kickstarter, Margot Atwell. "We're thrilled that they have come back to launch such new exciting projects. They are charting a new course for the future of publishing."
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 is an entirely new collection of 100 illustrated bedtime stories that celebrate extraordinary women from all over the world, from Nefertiti to Beyonce. Queens and activists, ballerinas and lawyers, pirates and computer scientists, weight lifters and inventors... a stunning juxtaposition creating a thrilling sense of possibility.
Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls – The Podcast is a sound rich deep dive into the most inspiring adventures contained in Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the Rebel Girls series. It transports listeners to the control room at NASA with Margaret Hamilton during the launch of Apollo 11, or on board of a pirate ship, loading cannons with Grace O'Malley. Each 12-minute episode focuses on a different character.
"We've always looked at this book as the stepping stone of a larger media company", explains Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli. "That's why we also want to tackle radio. This is a storytelling revolution and we're just getting started."
The book and accompanying perks can be ordered now on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timbuktu/kickstarter-gold-good-night-stories-for-rebel-girl
