Gabrielle Giffords & Mark Kelly to Write Memoir

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has landed a book deal with Scribner to write a memoir with her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly.  No publication date has been set and the book is currently untitled.

Here’s more from the release: “[It] will be a deeply personal account of Mark Kelly’s and Gabrielle Giffords’ lives together.  The memoir will recount 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.”

Attorney Robert B. Barnett negotiated the deal with executive VP Susan Moldow and editor-in-chief Nan Graham. Author Jeffrey Zaslow will help the couple write the book.
