Michelle Obama Scores a Book Deal About Her Garden
Matt | On 18, Mar 2011
First Lady Michelle Obama will soon add author to her résumé, among the other projects she’s currently handling.
The announcement was made on Thursday that FLOTUS will pen a book about her famous White House garden and healthy eating. As you may know, Mrs. Obama has made it her mission to see that childhood obesity is eliminated through her “Let’s Move” program. As part of her continuing quest for all things healthy, Mrs. Obama developed a vegetable garden a few months after moving in the White House. Even yesterday, she was hosting elementary school children in the garden shortly before her announcement.
Crown Publishing Group will help bring the untitled hardcover book to a retailer near you. It is due out in April 2012. Included will be text by FLOTUS and pictures of the White House garden.
Mrs. Obama stands to make NO money off of this book. According to Politico, she won’t receive an advance and all of the proceeds will be donated to charity. Damn!
It’s a recession and (if it were me) I’d have to put a few of those coins to the side. But, that’s noble of her and I can respect it. Someone would have something to say if she “made it rain” in the White House with her advance money. lol..
