Gabrielle Giffords & Mark Kelly to Publish Memoir Nov. 15

Today Scribner announced a November 15 publication date for Gabrielle Giffords’ and Mark Kelly’s new memoir, Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope.

Wall Street Journal columnist and The Last Lecture co-author Jeffrey Zaslow also worked on the book. The cover for the memoir is embedded above.

Here’s more from the release: “Gabby will be a deeply personal account of Gabrielle Giffords’ and Mark Kelly’s lives together, recounting their courtship, Ms. Giffords’ rise in U.S. politics, and the tragic January 8th shooting in Arizona which killed six people and gravely wounded Representative Giffords and twelve others.  The book will also tell the story of her recovery process and will trace Mark Kelly’s career from decorated Desert Storm combat pilot to his recent mission as the commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final flight.”
