Ted Kennedy’s Memoir Embargoed

amandaernst.jpg
Today’s guest on the Morning Media Menu was Amanda Ernst, editor of FishbowlNY. During the show, she pondered, among other things, the press embargo of Ted Kennedy‘s upcoming memoir.

Hachette Book Group will put out 1.5 million copies of Senator Edward M. Kennedy‘s posthumously-published book, “True Compass.” According to the NY Post, pre-orders have already driven the book high up the Amazon rankings and the publisher has embargoed the book until the September 14 release date.

The book will hit stores one day before another carefully-guarded book–the Sept. 15 release of Dan Brown‘s new novel (author website here), a major publishing event that GalleyCat readers are busily nicknaming.
