ulianna Margulies will publish a picture book with Random House Children’s Books in May 2016. Titled Three Magic Balloons, the story is based on one that the actress’s father, Paul Margulies, wrote for his three daughters.

The book follows three sisters who take weekly trips to the zoo with their father. Because the girls are so kind to the animals, a vendor gives them balloons that carry them off to magical adventures at night. Margulies and her sisters found the manuscript after their father’s death in October. An advertising executive by day, Paul Margulies also wrote plays, essays, and childrens’ stories.

“My father had published two children’s books, Gold Steps, Stone Steps and What Julianna Could See,” said Margulies. “As children, my sisters and I loved all his stories, and there were many. We collectively decided that Three Magic Balloons was worth sending out to publishers—if we could find the right illustrator.” They found that perfect illustrator in Grant Shaffer, whose work has been published in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and Interview, among other outlets.

“My father always used to say to us, ‘Magic is everywhere, you just need to know where to look!’” Margulies said. “We think children will feel the same way after reading Three Magic Balloons.”

An advocate on and off the screen

When I met Julianna Margulies last year, it didn’t take long to recognize a kindred spirit. It wasn’t just that we quickly began finishing each other’s sentences. It was her passion, fearlessness, empathy and an unwavering determination to make a difference in people’s lives off the screen that resonated with me.

We began talking about Erin’s Law, a bill she has been fighting to get passed that’s named after Erin Merryn, who was sexually abused as a child for years but never told anyone because she was ashamed. Julianna said, “Erin’s Law has passed in 19 states, and Erin will not stop until all 50 have it. Until we give every kid a voice.”

But you could tell Julianna isn’t going to stop either. She puts her heart and soul into every issue she cares about. She’s not afraid to dream big and do what she loves, whether it’s in her acting career, in her advocacy or being a mom. It’s because of women like Julianna that I know we can and will change the world.
