From the opening line of “For the first time in my adult life, I was proud of my country asparagus…” you’ll be hooked:
There’s a new author in the White House: Michelle Obama.
The first lady has signed with the Crown Publishing Group for a book about the garden she started on the South Lawn of the White House and the benefits of healthy eating. The book, currently untitled, is scheduled to come out in April 2012. Obama received no advance and will donate all proceeds to a charity or charities to be determined.
The White House said the garden has yielded more than 2,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables.
As always, in the spirit of bipartisanship, I’d like to help with a title. How about “The Audacity of Cantaloupe”?
