US first lady Michelle Obama has signed with the Crown Publishing Group to write a book about healthy eating and the garden she started at the White House.
The untitled book will be published in April 2012, and will see Michelle describing how she was inspired to plant the first edible garden on the White House's South Lawn since Eleanor Roosevelt's World War Two era "victory garden”, reports the Telegraph.
She will also share some of her family's favourite healthy recipes, said Crown, a unit of Random House publishers.Crown said Michelle received no advance and would donate the proceeds to a charity to be determined later.
The book would include photos of Michelle’s White House garden as well as other community, urban and school gardens around the United States.
