Nikki Haley Lands Book Deal

Just days after signing a controversial bill cracking down on illegal immigration, South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has inked a book deal with Penguin Group’s Sentinel imprint.

Entitled Can’t Is Not An Option: My Story, her memoir will be published in January. The book will share “her vision for the country and the Republican Party.” Williams & Connolly attorney Robert B. Barnett negotiated the deal with publisher Adrian Zackheim.

Zackheim had this comment: “Governor Haley has already had a fascinating journey. She’s part of an all-American success story — a hardworking immigrant family that overcame great obstacles and proved that the American dream is still possible for anyone. And she is clearly a rising star in national politics.”
