Orangette Blogger Molly Wizenberg Lands Book Deal

Author and Orangette blogger Molly Wizenberg has sold her second book to Simon & Schuster, a new memoir called Delancey.

The new memoir will focus on “a very young marriage, the difficult birth of a successful restaurant, and what we do for the people we love.” Michael Bourret at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management negotiated the deal with Trish Todd at Simon & Schuster.

Wizenberg (pictured, via) published A Homemade Life in 2009, writing about how her food blogging helped her cope with her father’s death and changed the course of her life.
