Jaycee Dugard Inks a Memoir Deal with Simon & Schuster

Kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to pen her memoir. At the moment, the book has no title but will be released in 2011.

Publisher Jonathan Karp acquired the book. Mort Janklow of Janklow & Nesbit Associates negotiated the deal and Nancy Seltzer represented the Dugard family.

Dugard spent 18 years of her life imprisoned by Phillip Craig Garrido. He kept her in a tent behind his family home. Dugard bore him two daughters and was finally freed in 2006.

Senior Editor Kerri Kolen commented: “Not only does Jaycee Dugard have a truly important story to tell, but she writes with such honesty and intimacy, that as I read her narrative, I felt like was in the room with her.
