Jessica Lange Lands Picture Book Deal

Academy Award-winning actress Jessica Lange has inked a deal with Sourcebooks’ Jabberwocky imprint.

Her picture book, It Is About a Bird, will hit bookstores in fall 2013. The book itself will contain photographs taken and hand-colored by Lange, inspired by a story she told her grandchildren. Here’s more from the release:

It’s the charming, delightful story about two sisters, Ilse and Adah, and their grandmother, Mem, who lives on a quaint, rambling small farm.  During the visit to the farm, the sisters sneak into the ramshackle barn they’re normally forbidden to play in, and stumble on all kinds of strange and fascinating treasures, including an antique birdcage. The discovery prompts Mem to reminisce, and to tell her granddaughters about time she spent in Paris and Rome as a young woman, where she adopted a pet canary named Uccellino—Italian for ‘little bird’—that she brought back with her to the United States.
