NEW YORK (AP) — Chelsea Clinton is extending her celebration of women to chapter books and the world of sports.

Clinton's "She Persisted in Sports: American Olympians Who Changes the Game" will be published Sept. 22 by the children's imprint Philomel Books.

The latest of Clinton's best-selling "She Persisted" picture books will include sections on Wilma Rudolph, Mia Hamm, and Venus and Serena Williams.

Also on Monday, Philomel announced that a new series of chapter books will feature 80-page stories on women that Clinton previously honored.

The series begins in January with "She Persisted: Harriet Tubman," written by the award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney.
