Washington, Apr 3 (ANI): US President Barack Obama’s half-sister has inked a book deal.
The first book of Maya Soetoro-Ng, a teacher in Hawaii, is inspired by Maya and Barack’s mother as well as by Maya’s four-year-old daughter.
In ‘Ladder to the Moon’, Maya pays homage to her mother’s tradition of storytelling - and celebrates her mother’s enduring legacy of service, reports The Politico.
The tome will be published by Candlewick Press.
Soetoro-Ng, a teacher at an all-girls school in Honolulu, campaigned for her brother and spoke at last year’s Democratic National Convention. (ANI)
