Second Lady Jill Biden to Publish a Picture Book


According to GalleyCat, Dr. Jill Biden (yes, the wife of our vice president Joe Biden) has inked a deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, who have signed on to publish her picture book Don’t Forget Nana, God Bless Our Troops in June. The press release explains, “Inspired by the real life experiences of the Biden family, Don’t Forget Nana, God Bless Our Troops will be told through the eyes of Vice President Joe and Jill Biden’s granddaughter, Natalie Biden. The story is inspired by Natalie’s life at home when her father was deployed. Natalie’s father, Beau Biden, is a Major in the Delaware Army National Guard and was deployed to Iraq for a year.” All proceeds will be donated to charity organizations for the families of men and women in the military. That all sounds very nice, but we’re still waiting for a political figure to come out with a wild, surreal, not-about-the-troops picture book. Not going to happen? Oh, all right. [via GalleyCat]
