Egypt's Ghonim Signs Book Deal for "Revolution 2.0"

BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, May 11 2011

Egyptian revolutionary Wael Ghonim has sold his upcoming book to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, reports the L.A. Times. From the publisher: "How Wael helped nurture a mass movement is one of the great stories of our time, with lessons for anyone who seeks to make change anywhere on earth using technology."

Ghonim tweets that his book deal totals a healthy $2.25 million and a half million dollars worth of books for public schools. All the money, he says, will go to Egyptian charities and "families of #Jan25 victims."
