NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (KEHR'-sten JIHL'-uh-brand) has a deal to write a book that will be a memoir and a call to action for women.
Random House Inc. imprint Ballantine Bantam Dell tells The Associated Press the New York Democrat's currently untitled book will include stories about her upbringing and how she "integrates marriage and motherhood into a dynamic and demanding political career."
Gillibrand says she admires books by and about women in professional life. She cites Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean In" and Hillary Rodham Clinton's "Living History." Gillibrand succeeded Clinton in the U.S. Senate in 2009 after Clinton became U.S. secretary of state.
Bantam said Monday the Gillibrand book is scheduled for the fall of 2014. Financial terms haven't been disclosed.
