THE SIX

Book Release: Fall 2023

“After a 12-house auction, which happened over the course of a week, Scribner’s Rick Horgan won North American rights to Loren Grush’s The Six. Susan Canavan at Waxman Literary Agency, who represented Grush, likened the narrative nonfiction book to bestsellers like Code Girls and Hidden Figures. It follows, Canavan said, “the six women chosen from 8,000 applicants to be America’s first female astronauts, and the challenges they faced in their quest to fly on the space shuttle.” The author is a senior reporter at Verge and the daughter of NASA engineers. The deal also included a young readers edition, which Justin Chanda and Kendra Levin acquired for Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. The Six is tentatively scheduled for spring 2023.” See Press Release »
