#UK Publisher plans series of tech books for young people


NEW YORK (AP) — Girls Who Code is teaming with Viking Children’s Books on a line of at least 11 planned works about computer science and coding.

In a joint announcement Wednesday, the tech organization and Viking said the upcoming books would include middle grade fiction, doodles and board books. The initial releases, coming in the summer of 2017, will be “Girls Who Code: Tips, Tricks, and Inspiration for Taking Over Tech” and the start of a fictional series billed as “The Baby-Sitters Club” meets coding.

Girls Who Code, founded in 2012 by Reshma Saujani, is a nonprofit with a mission “to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors.” Saujani is an activist and former deputy public advocate in New York City.
