Laura Bush memoir to be published in 2010

A memoir by Laura Bush, wife of U.S. President George W. Bush, will be released in 2010, publisher Scribner announced Monday.

The president's wife has signed with Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, to write about both personal and historical moments.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but it is expected she will earn as much as Hillary Clinton, who was offered a reported $8 million US for her memoir Living History.

"As a rare witness to the private moments of one of our country's most consequential presidencies, and as a first lady who has maintained a notable level of discretion, her memoir will provide a candid and personal perspective, and an enduring record, of the years that have already determined the course of the 21st century," said Susan Maldow, executive vice-president and publisher of Scribner.
