Books planned on Schiavo case
Terri Schiavo’s parents and siblings are writing a book about their struggle in the epic end-of-life case that captured the attention of everyone from Pope John Paul II to President Bush.
The yet untitled memoir, by parents Bob and Mary Schindler, brother Bobby Schindler and sister Suzanne Vitadamo, will be published by Warner Books in March to coincide with the first anniversary of the death of the brain-damaged woman, whose feeding tube was removed after her husband, Michael Schiavo, won a court order to do so.
The Schindlers’ book is likely to compete for space on the shelves with a memoir by their former son-in-law. Michael Schiavo is collaborating with author Michael Hirsh on the book “Terri: The Truth,” also planned for release in March by Dutton Publishing.
