Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one of the most recognizable faces of the Trump administration, is writing a book that is expected to be published next fall, St. Martin’s Press said Thursday.
In a news release, George Witte, the editor in chief of St. Martin’s Press, said the book would cover the former White House press secretary’s years working for President Trump and offer “a unique perspective on the most important issues, events and both public and behind-the-scenes conversations inside the White House.” The publisher declined to comment further. The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Ms. Sanders worked on Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign and joined the administration when he was elected. She served as his press secretary from July 2017 until she left the White House in June. Mr. Trump praised her loyalty, calling her “a warrior,” and encouraged her to run for governor of Arkansas, a position once held by her father, Mike Huckabee. She also became known for her confrontations with reporters, and for doing away with the decades-old tradition of formal daily press briefings, arranging instead for the president to speak and answer questions for himself.
“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,” Ms. Sanders said in the release.
