After suffering the loss of the 2016 presidential election, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton retreated back to a semi-private, quiet life. Her Twitter account did liven up during the Women’s Marches and she’s tweeted a few comments regarding President Trump’s Muslim ban, but other than that, she’s remained fairly quiet.
However, it seems as though we have not heard the last from her.
Had Clinton won, the election would still have been a harrowing process with most of it spent fighting allegations of scandal, releases of private e-mails, accusations, and flat-out insults from Trump. It’s unimaginable what she could have been thinking or how she coped throughout that time.
However, this fall, we may get a look into how she did just that. Through Simon & Schuster Clinton plans to release “reflections” on her life, including the election and ultimate loss to now-President Donald Trump.
AP reported that the book will revolve around inspiring quotes that “tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign.” AP reported:
‘The former secretary of state, senator and first lady is working on a book of personal essays that will come out this fall, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book, still untitled, is structured around hundreds of favorite quotations that have inspired her.’
In a statement from Clinton, she said:
‘These are the words I live by. 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.’
The book, which has yet to be titled, is set to release this fall.
Clinton, along with and Simon & Schuster, plan on re-releasing one of her best sellers as a children’s book. “It Takes a Village” was released in 1995 and was her first book. It is about the country’s role in shaping the future of our children. According to reports, the net author proceeds of “It Takes a Village” will go to charity. She’s also published several other books including her memoir “Living History” and “Hard Choices.”
Though rumors have circulated that Clinton plans on running for mayor of New York City, it’s been confirmed that she will be joining with the Harry Walker Agency again to deliver speaking engagements, the same kind she was criticized heavily for during the 2016 election primaries and general election. AP reports she has some set up already, though not through the Harry Walker Agency. She is set to speak at an event on International Women’s Day. She also plans to speak at a LGBT Community Center in NYC on April 20, and at Wellesley College on May 26.
Clinton’s book will surely be welcomed by her many supporters who are still disheartened by the devastating loss of the 2016 election. Her book will provide much-needed inspiration to individuals who are doing their best to protest and resist the Trump presidency.
