Chelsea Clinton’s new book aims to inspire young people


Recommeded reading

“It’s Your World” by Chelsea Clinton (Philomel Books). It’s going to be pretty interesting to see how the next few decades shake out for one Chelsea Victoria Clinton, formerly of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, now of a really nice apartment in New York City. Will she become a deeply private citizen? Probably not. Will she run for office? Well, it’s worked out OK for her folks (except recently). Right now, she is here discussing her book, “It’s Your World,” aimed at middle-schoolers who are looking to get (or whose parents and teachers are looking to get them) a little more woke. Topics covered include global poverty, education and global climate change. Since it is 402 pages, it also might help build developing biceps.
