Film critic Roger Ebert has sold his memoir to Grand Central. Publication is set for 2011.
Grand Central editor Mitch Hoffman bought the book. Ebert (pictured, via) is the author of a number of titles, including Awake in the Dark. Inspired by Esquire and Deadspin‘s moving tributes to Ebert, GalleyCat Reviews recently collected some book criticism from Ebert.
Here’s more from the NY Times: “The as-yet-untitled book will cover his relationship with his friend and fellow ‘At the Movies’ co-host, Gene Siskel, as well as his struggle with thyroid cancer.”
