Threshold Editions To Publish New Book By Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal


NEW YORK, May 5, 2015 – Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish AMERICAN WILL: The Forgotten Choices That Changed Our Republic by Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana. News of the acquisition was announced by Louise Burke, President and Publisher.

In AMERICAN WILL, Governor Bobby Jindal brings to life some of history’s greatest lessons, and shows how we can apply them to today’s most critical issues. Whether it’s the exciting story behind the Louisiana Purchase, the conflict between the Federalists and anti-Federalists, Reagan v. Nixon on the welfare front, or how the Cold War was nearly lost, AMERICAN WILL illustrates the dramatic tales that demonstrate the courage, faith, and vision that we need in 2016 and what we can learn from our past.

“This book is a call to arms for the future,” Governor Jindal explained. “It is inspired by the dramatic stories of great Americans whose lessons inform the principles and beliefs I cherish and champion.”

Said Louise Burke, “Governor Jindal is the perfect narrator for a book about what history continues to teach us.”

World publishing rights to AMERICAN WILL were acquired from Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer at Javelin. An October 20, 2015 publication date is planned.
