Cashing In

Obama Family Book Deals

So the first peripheral family member to cash in on the new first family’s success is not, sadly, illegal aunt Zeituni, but rather Michelle Obama’s brother, Craig Robinson. Robinson, according to the Associated Press, plans to publish a book “part tribute to his family and part inspirational guide.” Rumor has it that Gotham Books paid around $1 million for the deal and hopes are Michelle will write the introduction. Robinson is the men’s basketball coach at Oregon State University.
