Feminist and actress Lena Dunham will have her own book publishing imprint called Lenny, at Random House. The imprint will publish emerging voices of fictional and non-fictional works, selected by Lena and Lenny Letter co-founder Jenni Konner.

"While we love our home on the internet, Jenni and I are both voracious readers (of books and book reviews) who are constantly trading titles and allowing them to stir us creatively," Lena told Buzzfeed. "Our friendship often doubles as a book club. We feel like the Lenny voice lends itself to a diverse list of authors and we are so excited to work with Random House – they get our mission completely."

"Lenny books will aspire to push the ball forward on the issues that matter to our audience, with wit and style. We hope to see them sticking out of purses and riding public transportation everywhere," she added.

If Lenny Letter is anything to go by, we're in for a great treat!
