Hillary Clinton's anticipated new memoir from Simon & Schuster has been given a title. The publisher announced on Thursday that book will be called What Happened, and will tell the story of the 2016 presidential election. It will detail, among other things, how Clinton coped with losing her bid for for the presidency to Donald Trump.
“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net,” Clinton writes in the introduction to the book. “Now I’m letting my guard down.”
Simon & Schuster said the book, which is slated to be published on September 12, “a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation,” according to a release. Further, the book will delve into Clinton’s experiences with sexism and Russian interference during the presidential election.
“She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary,” said S&S in a press release. “By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces were that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.”
