Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new book “Persist” will hit stores in April, her publisher announced on Wednesday.
“I wrote ‘Persist’ because I remain as committed as ever to fighting for an America that works for everyone,” Warren in a statement. “I’ve written a dozen books, but this one is especially personal: I bring the pieces of who I am to the fight for real change, and I passionately believe that we are in a moment when extraordinary changes are possible.”
The book, due to be released on April 20, will touch on the Massachusetts Democrat’s 2020 presidential run but will not be a campaign memoir.
“Warren didn’t get into politics until she was in her early sixties. Yet she brought with her a lifetime of experience, and in ‘Persist’ she writes about six perspectives that have influenced her life and advocacy,” publisher Henry Holt and Company said, adding that it will cover her as a mother, a teacher, a planner, a fighter, a learner and a woman.
The title comes from comments Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made about Warren in 2017 after she refused to stop speaking against the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions to become President Trump’s attorney general.
McConnell said her reading a letter from Coretta Scott King violated the rules of the Senate.
“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” he said.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
But the AP reported that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank, the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, the Worcester County Food Bank, and the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
