An article or series about Jill Carroll’s experience as a kidnap victim in Iraq, written by her or another reporter, will appear exclusively in the newspaper that supported her so strongly, the Christian Science Monitor, in the next weeks, the New York Observer reports today.
The Observer also notes that many agents, and presumably publishers, interested in talking to Carroll about a book deal have been contacting her.
?There?s a great deal of interest in her story, from both media and literary agents,? Jay Jostyn, communications manager of The Christian Science Monitor, told the Observer on Monday. Jill Carroll was freed recently after after 82 days of captivity in Iraq. She has remained silent for days now, spending private time with her family.
Asked about her book plans, Jostyn said, “I really don?t know at this point. But we?re definitely making a point of conveying all of these requests to her and her family.”
