Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez es la mujer del momento, and the publishing industry is taking notice.
The youngest congresswoman to ever do it is serving in the most unapologetic of ways: boldly defending herself against the establishment, putting forth action plans to ensure a future for all of us and amplifying progressive messages on social media whilst also showing she’s not to be trifled with at a pace that makes me think she resides in an alternate dimension where she’s allotted several more hours in the day.
So it should come as no surprise that many are eager to tell her story and play a part in the recording of her place in history. In May, she inspired a comic book anthology by Devil’s Due titled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force, and just earlier this month Workman Publishing announced it has a vibrant bio in the works set for a November launch date.

Now, there’s another hardback to add to your collection. An illustrated alphabet book under the name The ABCs of AOC: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from A to Z will be readily available come early October. The unique compilation, which highlights words like Xenophobia, Grassroots, and Feminist, rightfully features AOC in her iconic caped white power suit and gold hoops on its cover. The book was written by Jamia Wilson and illustrated by Krystal Quiles.
The book is available for pre-order now.
