Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will read aloud the last chapter of her memoir for the audio edition of the book, the Arizona Republic reports.
The Arizona congresswoman’s spokesman Mark Kimble confirmed on Wednesday that Giffords has finished the recording, the paper says.
“Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope” is co-written by Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, and is expected to hit stores on Nov. 15.
With a cover that features the couple smiling in each other’s arms, the book promises to tell a “deeply personal account” of the pair’s romance, careers and the Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson in which the congresswoman was shot in the head.
The front of the audiobook features the same photo on the hardcover version of the book, and the bottom right corner of the cover reads, “Read by Mark Kelly with a final chapter read by Gabrielle Giffords.”
Giffords, who has largely stayed out of the public spotlight since the Tucson shooting, attended Kelly’s retirement ceremony from the Navy earlier this month. It was reported at the end of August that the Arizona lawmaker could walk with a cane and write with her left hand.
