Penguin Random House Wins Obama Book Deal… Will Donate 1Million Books to Kids!

ICYMI…. Penguin Random House JUST won the book deal of the century!  Former President Barack Obama, Former First Lady Michelle Obama and their $60 million will publish a number of books and I can’t WAIT to put one on my coffee table!!  Also as a photographer… I’m wondering who will get the opportunity/honor of photographing the power couple and their family.  In my dreams I see myself on this journey. 🙂

Penguin Random House will also donate 1 million books to the Obamas charity First Book, which provides books to underprivileged kids & another organization called Open ebooks, a digital education initiative.

Man oh man, I would love to be a fly on the wall to see the bidding process with all the major publishing companies. I heard the bids started at 18 million.  Can you imagine the sales that will come from this??

Sending a HUGE congrats to Obama family!  Here’s my only pic of the two… 🙂
