RAB to Publish First Book Ever on Feminist Pop Star Lorde
Riverdale, NY – March 19, 2014 – The innovated hybrid publisher Riverdale Avenue Books is proud to publish the first book on Grammy winning artist Lorde. Lorde: Your Heroine, How This Young Feminist Broke All the Rules and Succeeded by New York Times bestselling author, Marc Shapiro examines the career of this 17 year-old New Zealand musician who just won her first two Grammys for her hit song "Royals."
“When this manuscript came in, I couldn’t put it down. I could not believe that such a young woman could have such an inspiring life!” said Lori Perkins, Publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books. “She is the voice of her generation.”
Lorde: Your Heroine, How This Young Feminist Broke All the Rules and Succeeded explores the many facets of Lorde including her feminist viewpoints, how intellectually inclined she is, and her talent for writing meaningful music. Shapiro shows over the course of a year how Lorde’s career went from complete obscurity to superstardom.
"The intriguing thing about writing about Lorde is that she is so damned contrary to everything that pop music has become," said author Marc Shapiro. "She's a true intellect whose songs have been guided by great authors and deep thinkers rather than the predictable template of current pop music. She's smart, creative, a true individual and only 17. Stories that are too good to be true but that ultimately are just that makes a biography of Lorde truly something special."
