The non-fiction purchase order includes a political memoir from a President Obama Deputy Chief of Staff. It comes from Hachette’s Twelve imprint, which puts out a book a month (hence the name) and which “strives to publish singular books, by authors who have unique perspectives and compelling authority.”  Also worth a quick mention is President Bush (43)’s new book of portraits of veterans Portraits of Courage.  Our initial order is still meeting the holds copy ratio but the demand seems to be building steadily.

Mastromonaco, Alyssa.  Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? Twelve, March 21.

Who Thought This Was A Good Idea?“If your funny older sister were the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, her behind-the-scenes political memoir would look something like this. WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? is an intimate and admiring portrait of a president, a candid book of advice for young women, and a promising debut from a savvy political star”– Provided by publisher.
