Web Producer: Ina Ronquillo
PHOENIX (AP) - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will read aloud in the audio edition of her upcoming book, allowing many people for the first time to hear for themselves how she is recovering.
The Arizona Republic reports she will read the final chapter of the memoir she wrote with her husband Mark Kelly.
The paper says Giffords' spokesman Mark Kimble confirmed Wednesday that Giffords had completed the recording of that chapter.
Since she was shot in the head Jan. 8 at an event outside Tucson, the congresswoman has appeared in public only a few times. She has spoken only with friends, family and at small gatherings.
The paper says the memoir, "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope," details the couple's marriage, Giffords' political career, Kelly's career as an astronaut, and their experiences stemming from
the shooting, according to Scribner, the publisher.
The book is scheduled for release Nov. 15.
The couple is living in Houston where she continues therapy at TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital.
