Lin-Manuel Miranda has always been a ray of sunshine on Twitter. He’s always sending words of wisdom or inspiration to those who need it. Now he’s turning those daily “Gmorning” and “Gnight” tweets into a book.
The book will be illustrated by Jonny Sun and be released by Random House.
Miranda is best known as the creator and leading actor of the Tony-winning works Hamilton and In The Heights. He has also written the score for Bring It On: The Musical and songs for Disney’s Moana. He is also set to star in Disney’s upcoming Mary Poppins Returns, arriving in movie theatres in December.

Random House praises Miranda saying that “before he inspired the world with Hamilton and was catapulted to international fame, Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspiring his Twitter followers with words of encouragement at the beginning and end of each day. He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others. But as Miranda’s audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own. Now, at the request of countless fans, Miranda has gathered the best of his daily greetings into a beautiful collection illustrated by acclaimed artist (and fellow Twitter favorite) Jonny Sun. Full of comfort and motivation, Gmorning, Gnight! is a touchstone for anyone looking for a lift.”
