AP NewsBreak: Katie Couric writing memoir, expected for 2021

NEW YORK — Katie Couric is writing a memoir, one she is counting on to live up to its title: “Unexpected.”

In an announcement Tuesday, the publisher Little, Brown and Company said that the book was scheduled for spring 2021. Couric plans to share details both “hilarious” and “humiliating” as she looks back on her prize-winning, 40-year career in television. She will touch upon everything from the #MeToo movement, which led to the firing of her former “Today” show colleague Matt Lauer, to her own experiences with harassment. She also will write about the death of her first husband, Jay Monahan, and her battles with bulimia and insecurity.

Couric’s previous books include “The Best Advice I Ever Got” and the children’s story “The Brand New Kid.”
