Michelle Obama Writing a Book About White House Garden

First lady Michelle Obama will continue her campaign for healthy eating in a new book about the White House vegetable garden. All proceeds from the book will go to charity.

The first lady spoke about the project during the spring planting of the garden on the White House’s South Lawn. She told the AP:

“I hope it will be a beautiful book, as well, something that everyone can take something away from. Maybe if you’re a local gardener yourself, you’ll be drawn by the pictures of the … garden in its various stages throughout the seasons. If you’re a kid, maybe you’ll pick up the book and read along with your teachers, and look at how we’ve incorporated young people in our garden.”

In addition to the story of the garden, the book will feature some of the Obama family’s favorite healthy recipes.

The still untitled book will be published by Crown Publishing, an imprint of Random House, in April 2012. In addition to the illustrated hardcover, Crown is also releasing an enhanced multimedia ebook and a standard ebook version.
