America’s most dynamic duo are continuing their public service commitment in a new house, Random House. That’s right, The Obamas have inked their post-presidency book deal and it’s to the tune of a pretty $65 Million dollars.
While we were hoping that at least one of the titles went to editor Chris Jackson of One World Imprint, word on the street is that it has not. That would have been the icing on the cake, but alas we still have cake. Just knowing that Mr. Obama is a reader of the highest order, it’s going to be quite the experience when he takes up the role of author again since his Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope days.
We have this sneaking suspicion that Obama is really an author at heart and he ran for president for the sole purpose of researching the protagonist for some epic novel that he will one day gift to us. But of course, I’m sure public service was equally as important in his decision to run for president.
We’re looking forward to these titles and will definitely keep y’all updated on the details!
