Singer/music producer/fashion designer Pharrell Williams can now add childrens book author to his impressive résumé as his picture book 'Happy' comes out next week.

With it, Williams is launching the social media campaign #readHappy along with publishers Penguin Young Readers which encourages people to share their thoughts or images on why reading makes them happy. Each time the #readHappy hashtag is shared on social media, a book will be donated to the non nonprofit literacy organization FirstBook. 

Williams hopes to donate 50.000 books to children from low income familes through the campaign.
