Lili Reinhart Postpones Release Date of Poetry Book, 'Swimming Lessons'
Set to drop later this year in the fall.
UPDATE (March 23, 2020): Lili Reinhart took to Instagram to announce that the release date of her first-ever poetry book, Swimming Lessons, will be pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Riverdale star filmed a short video saying:
“Due to the current state of the entire world right now and the United States, my book Swimming Lessons, which was supposed to come out on May 5, is now being pushed to later this year in the fall.
It’s a bummer, but it’s just the way it is right now, and right now there are much more important things going on in the world than a poetry book. I wanted to say I’m sorry for those who had pre-ordered and were looking forward to it. It’ll come eventually. Thank you for being patient.”
Reinhart concludes her clip by wishing her fans well and to stay safe. An official date has not yet been disclosed, so stay tuned while we wait for more details.
ORIGINAL STORY (October 9, 2019): It turns out Lili Reinhart has a few more talents up her sleeve. This week, the Riverdale and Hustlers actress took to Instagram to announce her very first poetry book titled Swimming Lessons. She also reveals that she’s actually been into writing poems for quite some time now and wanted to share it with the world.
Reinhart writes in her caption:
“One year ago, I decided I wanted to share my poetry with the world. It’s scary to reveal a part of myself that I don’t often show, but I like to consider this book as more of a story rather than a confession of thought. Strangers, songs, films, fictional characters, love in various forms, and of course my own experiences were my inspiration throughout the creation of Swimming Lessons. This book means a lot to me and I’m very grateful to be in the position to finally share it.”
This isn’t the first time Reinhart has shared her creative talent with her fans. For Cole Sprouse‘s birthday, she dedicated a short but sweet piece to her boyfriend: “It seems as if the world would still be a stranger to me, if not for you. I’m so thankful that our paths intertwined to form this beautiful adventure.”
