The currently untitled book will address "the many pivotal moments of the administration," publisher Simon & Schuster said in a news release.

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell the story of my life in public service to the American people, from serving in Congress, to the Indiana Governor’s office and as Vice President of the United States,” Pence, 61, said in a statement.


The autobiography is part of a two-book deal, with the first of the titles scheduled to be released in 2023.

The autobiography, Simon & Schuster senior vice president Dana Canedy teased, will be "the definitive book on one of the most consequential presidencies in American history."
