A memoir by wounded Arizona politician Gabrielle Giffords and her retired astronaut husband, Mark Kelly, will be released on Nov. 15, the book's publisher said Wednesday.
The book, titled "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope," will be published by Scribner.
It tells the story of Giffords' and Kelly's lives together and chronicles the Congresswoman's life and recovery since she was shot through the head at a political rally in January, Scribner said.

Giffords, who is receiving intensive physical therapy in Houston, has been working closely on the book with Kelly and co-writer Jeffrey Zaslow, an author and Wall Street Journal columnist, the publisher said.
"Congresswoman Giffords has been fully engaged with the collaborative writing process of the book at every step," said Brian Belfiglio, a Scribner publicist.
The publisher, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement the book would also offer a "deeply personal account" of Kelly's career path from combat pilot to commander of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's final mission earlier this year.
Scribner said a portion of the authors' net proceeds would go to charities in Arizona.
