Algonquin to Publish Yoko Ono
Oct 11, 2013

Algonquin Books announced that it will be publishing Yoko Ono’s Acorn, and will rush production to meet a November 19 publication date, making the title available in time for the holidays. The book is a follow-up to Ono’s Grapefruit, published in 1964, and will reflect “her compelling philosophy of positive thinking.” It is Ono’s first solo book in 50 years.

Algonquin licensed trade paperback and digital rights from
direct-to-consumer publisher, OR Books. OR produces physical copies of the book through print-on-demand when titles are ordered through its Web site, and sells titles as e-books. When the Algonquin edition is released, OR will refrain from selling its e-book completely.

“Yoko Ono is a living legend, one of the most recognizable women on the planet, and an inspiration for me, personally, as well as to millions of others,” said Elisabeth Scharlatt, publisher of Algonquin.

Acorn will be composed of “100 unexpected and inspiring instructions” from Ono, who is now 80 years old, and will also feature drawings by the author.
