NEW YORK (AP) — Imagine Alicia Keys talking about Nina Simone, or Ashley Judd on Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Keys and Judd are among the readers for an audio edition of “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” and “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2.”

The two audiobooks, coming out June 19 from Penguin Random House Audio, each feature 100 short biographies of famous women. The publisher told The Associated Press on Friday that other pairings will include Esperanza Spalding reading about Audrey Hepburn, Danai Gurira on Gloria Steinem and Samira Wiley on Beyonce.

“Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls,” co-authored by Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli, originated through a Kickstarter campaign. It was published in hardcover in 2017 and became a New York Times best-seller, with subjects ranging from Cleopatra to Serena Williams. NVG
