Palin Comparison

How does a person produce a memoir at the tender age of 20? If the author in question is Bristol Palin (writing “with” Nancy French), she starts by throwing her ex-fiancé slash baby-daddy, Levi Johnston, under the campaign bus.

According to the first chapter of Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, Levi took the then 15-year-old Bristol camping, got her drunk on wine coolers, and then “stole” her virginity. Consider it a pre-emptive strike: Levi’s own memoir, Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs, is due out this fall. Gutsy? Maybe. Calculated? You betcha.

Li'l Palin will sign copies of her memoir at Desert Ridge Marketplace (the same place her equally infamous mother launched a tour last November for her latest book).

Free wristbands are available with book purchase at the store beginning at 9 a.m. Each wristband admits two, so bring your best Tea Party pal.
