The scoop from Washington

Michelle Obama book signing at Politics and Prose, D.C. bookstore

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Even though it was published last year, First Lady Michelle Obama next Tuesday (May 7) will do a book signing of her book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Garden Across America at the Politics & Prose bookstore in northwest D.C.

The independent bookstore--with a coffee house--is a neighborhood treasure. And this being Washington, there are interesting connections. The bookstore owners are Lissa Muscatine and her husband, Bradley Graham. Muscatine is a longtime speechwriter for former Secretary of State/First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The book is about Mrs. Obama's White House garden and healthy eating. Mrs. Obama has directed that any "author proceeds" go to the National Park Foundation.

After a photo op at the top, the book signing will be closed to the press.
