[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/11/24/palinbook.jpg caption="Palin's book tour continues after the holiday."] (CNN) - Sarah Palin is taking a break from her marathon book tour to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family in Richland, Washington, her spokeswoman confirmed to CNN Wednesday.
Palin's parents are originally from the area, and an aunt of the former vice presidential candidate currently lives there.
But Palin won't be off the book trail for long: She's slated to sign books at a Hastings bookstore in Richland Sunday.
The menu at "Aunt Katie's house" isn't public, says Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton, "but there's no doubt there will be meat - right next to the mashed potatoes."
