EXCLUSIVE: President Hinckley to Publish Book with Random House
Kent Larsen 1Sep99 C1
LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley will publish a book early
next year with publishing giant, Random House, the world's largest
english-language trade publisher. Hinckley's book, "Standing for
Something" will be published by the Times Books imprint of Random
House in March of next year. It could be on bookstore shelves as
early as January.
"Standing for Something" is characterized by the publisher as
'Inspirational Non-Fiction,' and will reportedly address three
topics, Integrity, Family and Faith. The book is written for a
contemporary American audience, which is why it is being published by
Random House instead of Church-owned Deseret Book.
At a recent sales conference, the book reportedly was well received
by the Random House sales force, who will sell the book to bookstores
and other media outlets.
