People in the News: Set 2

People are fascinated by celebrities, but rarely do they know much about actors, comedians, or singers beyond their public personas. For this reason, it is sometimes easy to forget that celebrities are real people who have had their own triumphs, setbacks, hopes, and fears. Readers learn about the lives and accomplishments of some of today’s most influential celebrities, including facts that are not commonly known. Full-color photographs and engaging sidebars enhance the informative text, and a detailed timeline presents these stars’ milestones at a glance.
• The series examines a diverse range of influential and inspirational celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres, Dwayne Johnson, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, giving readers positive role models to look up to
• Annotated quotes by each celebrity allow readers to learn more about each person in his or her own words
• This high-interest topic appeals to even reluctant readers and encourages them to think critically about the world of entertainment media
