American grOwn. FLOTUS' book

Wow, #WeCantWait

It'll be out right before tax day.

Does she look proud, or what:
Mrs. Obama is bringing top Obama administration food, health and community development financing officials and Chicago native Sam Kass, the White House Senior Policy Adviser for Healthy Food Initiatives. Kass is also a White House chef who helps oversee Mrs. Obama's White House kitchen garden.
At a cost for Kass in the six figures. The book "more than likely to be a best-seller" will go for $30.

No word on whether she'll be visiting a precious Potemkin farm to promote the book, and will there be pickled okra recipes?

More. Looks pretty Potemkin to me:
Erika Allen runs Iron Street Farm, which, according to her, cultivates much more than produce. “We are growing people here too! Folks from all walks of life become active agents in creating a locally operated food system.” Allen has also set up a for-profit entity—GreenERA—that will expand the farm’s ability to invest in renewable energy initiatives and in turn enable Allen to offer permanent full-time jobs at living wages to some of her farm workers.
