Hillary Clinton to open up about the 2016 election in new book titled ‘What Happened’

The title of Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir on the 2016 presidential election will be “What Happened,” which, according to the Associated Press, will be released on Sept. 12.

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net,” Clinton wrote in a statement from the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, “Now I’m letting my guard down.”

This is her seventh book with Simon & Schuster since 1996, and the publisher in a press release said Clinton’s latest work is a “cautionary tale” of forces that might have worked against her during the election.

“She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye,” according to the Associated Press, which obtained the press release. “The criticism over her voice, age and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.”

Prior to becoming the first female on the presidential ballot for a major U.S. political party, she also served as first lady, New York senator and secretary of state. Clinton first announced her book deal Feb. 1 and is currently also converting her first book “It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us,” into a picture book.
