Random House announced Tuesday that it will publish In the Heights: Finding Home, which will give a look at the beginnings of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2008 breakout Broadway debut and journey to the soon-t0-be-released film adaptation directed by Jon M. Chu.
After working together on the New York Times best-seller Hamilton: The Revolution, Miranda and co-author Jeremy McCarter reunite here, with Quiara Alegría Hudes, the Pulitzer Prize–winning librettist of the book for the Tony-winning Broadway musical and screenwriter of the motion picture, also an author.

The book will also feature lyric annotations by Miranda, essays written by Hudes, and never-before-seen photos from productions and the movie set.
North American publishing rights were acquired by Random House executive editor Ben Greenberg from Eric Simonoff at WME.
