Michelle Obama is set to do a New York City media junket Tuesday and Wednesday for her new book, “American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America.”
The book will be released Tuesday, when she will be interviewed on Good Morning America, The View, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. On Wednesday she will appear on LIVE! with Kelly.
Cooking show host Rachel Ray also snagged an interview with Michelle, traveling to the White House where she videotaped a cooking session with the first lady and a look at the White House garden.
According to the description on Amazon, if you read the book, you will “learn about her struggles and her joys” with “lettuce, corn, tomatoes, collards and kale, sweet potatoes and rhubarb” while getting “an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at every season of the garden’s growth, with striking original photographs that bring its story to life.” She’ll include recipes and share “the stories of other gardens that have moved and inspired her.”
She’s not making any money off it – proceeds go to charity. But publicity goes to her.
The book is related to her “Let’s Move” program to improve kids’ diets.
Here’s Michelle promoting American Grown herself.
Michelle probably does enjoy gardening, but she’s also said to eat lots of pizza.
