BARBRA STREISAND’S FIRST BOOK, “MY PASSION FOR DESIGN,”
DEBUTS AT #2 ON NEW YORK TIMES “ADVICE, HOW-TO & MISCELLANEOUS LIST”
Barbra Streisand’s first venture as an author and photographer, “My Passion For Design,” has entered the New York Times bestseller book lists in its first week of publication, registering as Number Two on the Advice, How-To and Misc. list. It is a significant achievement in consideration of the fact that, at a price of $60, it is the most expensive book on the list, according to the volume’s publisher, Viking, a member of the Penguin Group (USA) Inc.
The book explores the lifelong passion for design which has motivated the iconic actress, singer, director, screenwriter, composer, producer, designer and now author and photographer, illustrated by the thirteen year process of her personal creation of a dream house barn on her estate in Malibu. A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Barbra Streisand Women’s Cardiovascular Research and Education Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
