Giffords and Kelly to Write Memoir

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 12:09 PM

The New York Times arts blog reports that Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly are planning to write a memoir together.


The book will be an account of their courtship, Ms. Giffords’s political career and the attack in Tucson in January that left Ms. Giffords gravely wounded with a gunshot wound to the head, according to a statement from Scribner. “We are deeply honored to publish Mark Kelly’s and Gabby Giffords’ memoir, which will fully unfold the remarkable story of two exceptionally brave public servants,” said Susan Moldow, the publisher of Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Since the shooting in January Ms. Giffords has spent much of her time in a rehabilitation center in Houston and is communicating through basic sentences and gestures. She was recently discharged from the hospital and returned to Tucson last weekend for a visit. She and Mr. Kelly, a Navy captain, will be assisted in the writing by Jeffrey Zaslow, an author and columnist for The Wall Street Journal.

The book is currently untitled and does not have a publication date. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity, the publisher said.
