Palin biography set for 9- to 12-year-olds

Posted: Sunday, July 11, 2010

JUNEAU - You might call it Sarah Palin's introduction to the cubs.

A biography of the self-described "mama grizzly" is set for release in September by Christian book publisher Zondervan.

"Speaking Up: The Sarah Palin Story," is one in a series of biographies aimed at 9- to 12-year-old readers; others include 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and U2 frontman Bono.

Pam Mettler, associate PR director for the ZonderKidz Division, says the subjects are "active Christians in the world" and prominent news figures. She says the publisher believes kids will connect with their stories.

Palin, a former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, has often referred to her faith and what she sees as her call to public service.
