Simon & Schuster have announced that Hillary Clinton has committed to a new book of personal essays “inspired by the hundreds of quotations she has been collecting for decades.”
“These are the words I live by,” Hillary said in a statement. “These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer. I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers.”
Simon & Schuster notes that Hillary will use the book and the quotes “to tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign.” The quotes will be used by Hillary “as jumping off points for reflections on the future.”
Clinton has a long relationship with Simon & Schuster — her five previous books were also with the publisher. Her most recent, Hard Choices, was published in 2014. A press release notes that Hillary and S&S have been kicking around the idea of a quotes book since their first meeting in 1994.
Hillary was the Democratic Presidential Nominee in the 2016 election but lost to Republican nominee Donald Trump. Hillary has taken time off in the months following the election, though she’s recently tweeted a few things about protests and the President’s recent string of Executive Orders.
