Gabrielle Giffords And Husband Writing A Memoir

| Filed under: Etc.PolitikInspirationBookz

Giffords Memoir

The only thing many people know about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is that she was shot in the head during a tragic spree by a horrible man.

Yet, as with anyone, there is a whole story to the person outside of their public image becoming dominated and defined by one specific event. And luckily, Gabrielle and her husband will be able to tell that story.

It has yet to be titled, and dated, but the deal is set with Scribner.

Here's what to expect:

It is to be an intimate chronicle of everything from their careers and courtship to the Jan. 8 tragedy when a gunman shot Giffords in the head as she met with constitutents in Tucson, Arizona. Six people were killed in the attack and 12 others besides the congresswoman were wounded.

While Kelly [her husband] will be "the primary collaborator," he said Giffords will be a "big part of this." Giffords has been struggling to relearn how to speak and walk, and will be assisted by a 24-hour home health provider, according to the hospital.

Apparently they'll be teaming up with the writer who helped Captain Sully write his memoir, Jeffrey Zaslow, so we know that at least structurally it'll be solid for sure. And with a story like theirs, we're willing to bet it'll be more than worth the read.

Hope you're getting better and better, Gabrielle!

    Mr. Loughner is another CIA programmed assassin.

    I would call the book "How Sarah Palin Ruined Our Lives". Dumb bitch!

    Re: TORTEZ – Your Crazy
    Otherwise I think she should just refer to the shooter as the dumb assshole bitch that shot me and never use his name

    How do you think Gabby should refer to the shooter - I mean if not by name? I would love to see your ideas - mine is up already

    Perez, I'm sure that you passed the same sympathy to James Brady because political affiliation knows no limits. Right? Have you promoted memoirs of other heroes who sacrificed for our country regardless of the political party they served? Since you've delved into politics as well as celebrity, why not mention those who have served our country? There are soldiers dying in the Middle East in the war Obama promised to end. Now there is a new war in Yemen. And American blood shed in the battle. But I guess it's OK because 'bama has sent them there without the approval of congress. Wake up. Life isn't a party at a club in Miami. BTW, what are you doing to help the Cuban cause?

    she has no memory.

    i am so tired of hearing about this stupid white trash gabby. im glad she got shot. she deserved it. lol now she has a deformed head. she looks like a retarded old lady. haha sucks for her.

    OK, so now she is instantly interesting because some nutbag randomly chose to kill a bunch of people and she survived. It does not make her any more interesting, and I could care less about her memior. Don't get me wrong, i feel for her and her situation, but in the end, she still just a politician, not some savior because she survived a head blast.

    I am a RN in a traumatic brain injury unit and I can guarantee Gabby is not writing any book. She probably isn't even able to form words let alone sentances. Obviously it will be her husband trying to cash in on this.

    My question is WHY Perez is this interesting to you? Our country is falling apart and you are posting crap about a politician who never was important until she got shot.

    This is the one place where I would hope to NOT have to have politics shoved down my throat! Tell me about Kim Kardashian's ass implants or Angelina Jolie's fake lips but don't force your politics on us. I am SICK of politics!

    Hmmm…. Last week its floated she may retire. Over the weekend it comes out he's retiring. Guess the book deal was just what was needed to sweeten the nest egg, although why anyone would want to read about their private lives is beyond me. What happened to he was tragic. But it doesnt make her interesting.



  11. 11

    Sarah Palin can't form words let alone sentences yet she's written two books.

    seriously some of the comments left here are beyond shameful.



  12. 12

    who cares what she has to say ??? NOBODY CARES ! WTF can she say "I was shot and it hurt ..I think ? the end "



  13. 13

    Sarah Palin owes her an apology.



  14. 14

    I can't believe the comments on here - I hope all of you that wrote mean sprited things about her understand that this is a person who was dedicating their best to our country - for people like you and me adn this is how you respond - she cared enought to put herself right ut there with thr public at this event and got shot- I think a lot of you deserve to go through a hello like this - maybe you wouldn't find it so fuckiing funny
