Former White House Press Secretary and current Arkansas resident Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be publishing a memoir focused on her life and experiences in the Trump administration.
According to Sanders, the memoir will center around her work in the Trump administration, where she served as deputy White House press secretary and was named White House Press Secretary in July 2017 following former press secretary Sean Spicer’s resignation. In June 2018, President Donald Trump tweeted that Sanders would be leaving the White House.
Since that time, Sanders has picked up a job as a commentator for the Fox Network – a role that she is scheduled to begin on Sept. 6.
“From Arkansas to the White House and back, I’m excited to tell my story about the challenges of being a working mom at the highest level of American politics, and my role in the historic fight raging between the Trump administration and its critics for the future of our country,” Sanders said in a statement.
St. Martin’s Press acquired the world rights for the book, which is expected to be published in fall 2020. St. Martin’s Editor-in-Chief George Witte obtained the book rights from literary agent David Limbaugh.
“Sarah Huckabee Sanders exemplifies grace under pressure, and her memoir will offer a truly unique perspective on the most important issues, events, and both public and behind-the-scenes conversations inside the White House,” Witte said.
Sanders has been tipped to be a possible frontrunner for the 2020 Arkansas gubernatorial race, given her resume at the national level in the Trump administration and her family connections – as the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Despite being named as a potential contender, she has given no public indication that she intends to run for the office.
