Hillary Clinton's Next Moves: Book of Essays, Speaking at Alma Mater

Hillary Clinton

The book will include reflections on the tumultuous presidential election.

Nearly three months after she lost the Electoral College and the presidency to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has announced her next move -- she's penning a book of personal essays to be published by Simon & Schuster, Vanity Fairreports.

Following the election, Clinton remained mostly out of the public eye except for a speaking engagement for the Children's Defense Fund November 17, when she insisted, "America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values, and never, ever give up."

At a time when many speculated about what her role could possibly be in the wake of the election, she was primarily spotted out hiking near her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. On one of her more public outings since the election, she was met with thunderous applause when she attended the final performance of The Color Purple on Broadway. Still, the question as to what Clinton would do next was so pervasive that Saturday Night Livespoofed her post-election persona with a piece that compared her to great American myths in the vein of Bigfoot.

The new, yet untitled, book will be made up of essays "inspired by the hundreds of quotations she has been collecting for a decade," Deadine reports. It will also include recollections of the 2016 presidential election and on her opponent Trump.

"These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer," Clinton said in a statement.

Clinton is already the author of several books, including Hard Choices, Living History, Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids' Letters to the First Pets, and her breakout 1996 book It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us, which she intends to reissue in an illustrated edition for young readers.

In addition to the new book, Clinton is slated for a couple of speaking engagements, beginning with one at the U.S. Postal Service ceremony to honor designer Oscar de la Renta. In late May she's set to deliver the commencement address at Wellesley College, her alma mater.
