Jaycee Dugard To Publish Memoir with Simon & Schuster

On July 12, Simon & Schuster will publish a book by kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard.

Entitled A Stolen Life, the book will provide a “stark, compelling narrative” about her tragic story. Last year, Dugard and her mother appeared in an ABC News feature. Her mother concluded with this statement: “As a mother I am pleading for our privacy in this very public story.”

Here’s more from the release: “Dugard, who was kidnapped at the age of 11 by Phillip and Nancy Garrido and held captive for 18 years, during which time she bore him two children, tells the full story of her ordeal in the book … [It] been written by the 31-year-old Dugard herself and will cover the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present.”
