I tweeted some science-related #mswls earlier this summer, but I thought it’d be helpful to collate them here and share! Here goes:
- I would love to see a trade NF book exploring antarctica and climate change. (This idea is not fully formed, so bear with me…) So like, why protecting antarctica is important, who “owns” antarctica, what is actually physically present (animals, research stations, etc) written in a way that’s super engaging for young readers (perhaps picture book or middle grade)
- Space, astronomy, astrophysics.
- A book about how going to the moon now would be different than it was when the US went in 1969 (technology changes, etc.) for kids or teens.
- amazing stories about what human, animal or plant bodies can do (e.g. more like on a cellular/biology level, not biographies)
- NF books about scientific discoveries made by LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, disabled, non-christian, and/or neurodiverse people (particularly for an mg or ya audience, though open to pbs as well).
- a how-to book for teens about divestment and eco-activism
- books that emphasize the bridge between science and the arts
- I went through a phase years ago where I read a lot of books on the history of math
- NF pbs that are written using a super engaging hook or concept
This would all have to be for the trade non-fiction audience, since I don’t rep books in the educational market. Hope this helps, and if you have something that might be a fit, you can query me here!
