After former Motion Picture Association of America president Jack Valenti died yesterday at the age of 86, we wondered what would be the fate of his memoir, THIS TIME, THIS PLACE, MY LIFE: My Life in War, the White House and Hollywood, which Harmony Books scheduled for publication this June. According to spokesperson Annsley Rosner, the memoir will be published as planned. “There are no words that fully capture the essence of Jack Valenti,” his publisher, Shaye Areheart said in a statement. “He was the life of the party and a man who accomplished so many great things over the span of his varied careers. I feel so privileged to have known and worked with him over the years and am deeply saddened that he will not be able to enjoy the publication of his memoir. He poured his heart into the writing of the book and was so proud of the finished product. Nobody could tell a story better than Jack and he had so many incredible stories to tell. The book is a beautiful tribute to a life well lived and a testament to his rightful place in the history of our country and the film industry. We will miss him.”
