London: Michael Jackson`s mother is planning to release a book in the memory of her late son on his first death anniversary.

Katherine, who inherited 40 percent of her son`s estate and was named the guardian of his three children, will release a picture book called ‘Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Archives’ Monday, reports contactmusic.com.

"She`s very proud of the book," said a source.

She reportedly had discussed the book at length with the singer`s former business partner Marc Schaffel last week.

The ‘Thriller’ hitmaker died of drug overdose June 25 last year.
