A calendar, a revived movie and TV career, awards, accolades, the love of the public – and now, she’s about to be bound. Twice.

Betty White has closed a deal with the New York publishing house of G.P. Putnam’s Sons to write two books: a wisecracking self-help volume and a tale of her life with her animal friends, reports USA Today.

The first title, Listen Up!, arrives next spring and will offer lessons on love, life, sex, aging and TV that the perennial Golden Girl (who’s now Hot in Cleveland), 88, has gleaned during her lengthy career.

The second book, The Zoo and I: Betty and Her Friends, will tell in words and pictures of her furry pals at the Los Angeles Zoo, where White sits on the board.
