Michael Jackson Literary Links

Today is the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death, and we picked out some literary links to remember the great pop star.

Check out these posts about the books written by Jackson during his lifetime, Jackson’s favorite bookstore, the The Little Prince’s role at his memorial service, and finally, Maya Angelou’s poem about Michael Jackson (read by Queen Latifah in the video embedded above).

eBookNewser pointed us to a new digital book about the pop icon. FastPencil is publishing an eBook version of What Really Happened to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop: The Evil Side of the Entertainment Industry by Leonard Rowe.

Here’s more about the eBook: “Rowe is a concert promoter and long time friend of the Jacksons. He was working with Jackson on “This Is It,” the tour that Jackson was preparing for before he died. The book chronicles Jackson’s rise to fame, his challenges with tabloids, the corruption within the music industry and postulates a conspiracy that Jackson was murdered.”
