Speaking Up: The Sarah Palin Story, a biography of Sarah Palin aimed at 9-12-year-olds and written by Kim Washburn, was slated to pub in October, but has been delayed "indefinitely," according to the Associated Press. The bio was slated to be part of a series of biographies targeted at middle-grade readers.

Cheryl Lundberg, Zondervan's director of customer service, told the AP that it was decided that October was not an optimal time for publication, and she had no information about when the title would be rescheduled. Washburn was surprised by the delay, which was announced Friday.
