(Newser) – Craig Robinson, brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, is working on a book to be published next year, the AP reports. Robinson, who coaches the men’s basketball team at Oregon State, hopes the book—entitled A Game of Character—will be part memoir, part inspirational guide.

“I’ve been privileged to know some extraordinary people in my life,” Robinson, 46, said in a statement announcing the book. “I’ve watched as my sister Michelle, a rock of a mother, became a leader in her own right. My brother-in law, President Barack Obama, who I knew from the first time I met him had something special, continues to inspire all of us.”
