Elizabeth Warren’s Memoir Hits Bookshelves Next Month

51mJsTyRz+L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren has a memoir coming out next month from Metropolitan Books, an imprint of Macmillian, called A Fighting Chance.

In the book Warren tells her own personal story of how she made it as a law professor and in Congress. Check it out:

As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher—an ambitious goal, given her family’s modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws?

Warren is the author of a number of finance books including: All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan and The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke.

Elizabeth Warren Lands a Book Deal with Metropolitan Books

Senator Elizabeth Warren will publish a book about “how Washington is rigged against America’s middle class” with Henry Holt and Company’s Metropolitan Books imprint.

Publication is set for the spring of 2014. Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly negotiated the deal with publisher Stephen Rubin. Editor at large John Sterling will edit. You can read her work on Twitter, where she has more than 82,000 followers. Here’s more from the release:

The main focus of the book, however, will be the conflict America now faces between giant institutions and the needs of everyday citizens. Senator Warren will bring her wide professional experience – as a Harvard law professor, head of the Congressional panel that tried to bring some oversight to the bank bailout, and assistant to the President for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – to outline how the American middle class can be strengthened. The book will discuss how powerful interests in Washington have rigged the system to benefit themselves and what actions must be taken at every level – from campaigns to legislation to government agencies – to level the playing field.
