that Tyra Banks is writing a three book series for Delacorte Press about a fictional place called Modelland. Modelland
is also the name of the first book in the series. Modeling is something Tyra Banks knows a great deal about. The former supermodel has been hosting America's Next Top Model
for several years.
Banks, the host of reality competition "America's Next Top Model" and whose own TV talk show is set to end this year, will write three books, Delacorte Press said.
She has already finished the first, called "Modelland", which is about a teen girl in a make-believe society at an academy for exceptional models called Intoxibellas. It will be published in the summer of 2011.
Tyra Banks says the Intoxibellas in her series have super powers. Modelland
will arrive in bookstores next summer.
