Keith Richards is Writing a Children’s Book

Gus and Me by Keith Richards-detailRock icon Keith Richards is working on a children’s book called Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar.

The book is an illustrated story about his relationship with his own grandfather. “The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured,” stated Richards. ”This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me.”

Richards’ daughter Theodora Dupree Richards plans to illustrate the book with pen and ink collages based on photos of her father when he was a child.

Orion Children’s Books  will release the book in hardcover and eBook on September 9, 2014. The hardcover version will come with an exclusive audio CD featuring bonus book content.
