Much better than the new phone books.

We're still telling Michelle

Our new book of letters to Michelle Obama, Go, Tell Michelle, just won't quit. It's had a splendid month, due in no small part to the tireless work of the coeditors, Barbara Seals Nevergold and Peggy Brooks-Bertram, the contributors, SUNY Press staff, and everyone else involved with the project. It all came together at the right time and it's exploded into its own ever-evolving online community. First the book started showing up on various blogs before it was even published, and now its even started its own Facebook page and built a nice community of fans there in a short period of time. It's now into its third printing and the demand continues to grow. We've even heard that Michelle herself may have gotten her hands on a copy of the book. Sublime.

We're happy to announce that the book has its very own blog now, so check it out here. We hope to keep you posted on everything happening with the book over there, so check back often. In the meantime, enjoy this CNN interview with Barbara and Peggy regarding the book and its early success.
