Laura Bush Memoir Deal

First Lady Laura Bush has finally inked a deal for her memoir: Scribner will publish her recollections in 2010. The publisher promises "a candid and personal perspective" from "a rare witness to the private moments" of the president. Though the payout has yet to be released, the deal was negotiated by power attorney Robert Barnett, who has secured top-dollar deals for books from the Clintons and Ted Kennedy.
