In a move sure to aggravate unagented (and poorly agented) authors, Jenna Bush has scored a high-powered literary agent — Robert Barnett. So, what’s the subject of Jenna’s masterpiece? Barnett has been shopping her “young-adult book based on the former grade school teacher’s experiences with charity causes in Latin America” to New York publishers. Oh, goody! (Via PoliticalWire)
Jenna Bush, Author?
By Madeleine Begun Kane
A Bush twin (not Barb, but the other)
Is shopping a kid’s book. Oh, brother!
Can Jenna Bush write?
Do her verbal skills bite?
Let us hope she takes after her mother.
Update 9/31/09: Incoherent quote of the day from Jenna Bush Hager, talking about her new gig as a Today Show correspondent:
It wasn’t something I’d always dreamed to do. But I think one of the most important things in life is to be open-minded and to be open-minded for change.
Let’s hope somebody else writes her scripts.
