Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly, have signed a book deal with Scribner. The memoir will cover their courtship, Giffords’ political career, and the attack in January that almost killed her. Jeffrey Zaslow, a writer for The Wall Street Journal, is signed up to assist them in writing. The book does not yet have a publication date.
