Cindy McCain, widow of Sen John McCain, will have a memoir out this spring.

Forum, a Penguin Random House imprint, announced on Tuesday that McCain’s Stronger: Courage, Hope, and Humor In My Life With John McCain will be released on 27 April. Forum is calling the book an “intimate memoir” in which McCain will reflect on her 38-year marriage to the Arizona Republican, who died in 2018.

“Being married to John for 38 years was an adventure,” Cindy McCain said in a statement. “Because of what I learned from him about honor and courage, I know how to use my voice to stand up for what I believe is best for me, my family, and America. Writing ‘Stronger’ at this time was important to me, and I’m excited to share the full story of our life together.”

Cindy McCain made news in 2020 when she endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a close family friend, over the incumbent Donald Trump. Last month, Republican party officials in Arizona voted to censure her for support of Biden, who defeated Trump and became the first Democratic presidential contender since 1996 to win in Arizona.
