Obama's bro-in-law writing a book

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

First brother-in-law Craig Robinson is taking advantage of the presidential momentum and is working on a book to be published next year by Gotham.

Robinson, big brother to first lady Michelle Obama and men's basketball coach at Oregon State University, says the book, titled A Game of Character, will be part tribute to his family and part inspirational guide. No doubt Chicago will play a big role in the book, as both Robinson and his famous sis grew up on the city's south side.

"I've been privileged to know some extraordinary people in my life," Robinson said. "I've watched as my sister Michelle, a rock of a mother, became a leader in her own right. My brother-in law, President Barack Obama, who I knew from the first time I met him had something special, continues to inspire all of us."

Thank you for the heads up on Mr. Robinson's book. It will be interesting to read his insights on the life with his "little sister" and their relationship. How exciting for him to have a front-row seat to watch these amazing events unfold.

take care,
