Lena Dunham and Lenny Letter co-creator Jenni Konner are building on the success of their feminist newsletter with a new imprint at Random House, Lenny. Launching in 2017, the imprint will publish a number of fiction and non-fiction titles each year selected by the pair and drawing on the new female voices already platformed through the popular bulletin. Lenny books is also a natural extension of an existing partnership between Dunham and Random House, which published her bestselling memoir Not That Kind of Girl in 2014.
Speaking to BuzzFeed, Dunham said: “We feel like the Lenny voice lends itself to a diverse list of authors and we are so excited to work with Random House — they get our mission completely. Lenny books will aspire to push the ball forward on the issues that matter to our audience, with wit and style. We hope to see them sticking out of purses and riding public transportation everywhere.”
