(TODAY SHOW) NEW YORK — A Princeton University alumna who urged female students to find a husband before they graduate has a book deal.

Susan Patton has an agreement with Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, for “Smarten Up!: Words of Wisdom from the Princeton Mom.” Gallery Books announced Tuesday that “Smarten Up!” is scheduled to come out in the spring of 2014.

Patton attracted national attention for a letter published in March by The Daily Princetonian. A member of the class of 1977, Patton advised women currently at Princeton to seek a mate on campus, warning that they would never again be around so many “worthy” men.
