Nearing 100, Betty White’s life is a page-turner in new book

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new coffee table book celebrates Betty White’s life and career as she nears 100.

The book by a veteran entertainment journalist details White’s journey in Hollywood, including hosting an early variety-talk show.

White became a TV sitcom star in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Golden Girls. Her appearance on “Saturday Night Live” in 2010 earned her a new generation of admirers.

Carol Burnett and Candice Bergen are among those interviewed for the book, written by Ray Richmond and titled “Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life.”

The book is out Tuesday.

White, who was born in 1922, will turn 100 on Jan. 17.
