Hillary Clinton’s New Memoir Looks at “What Happened” in the 2016 Election

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir has an official title: “What Happened.” Arriving September 12, the book promises a retrospective on the mistakes she made during the 2016 presidental election, and her surprising loss to Donald Trump. Specifically, according to publisher Simon & Schuster, Clinton will write from her perspective as the first female presidential candidate from a major political party during an election year “marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules.”



Per The Hill, the memoir will “double down on Russia’s interference and James Comey’s involvement in her stunning election defeat.” Though she has mostly been out of the public eye in recent months, this new book will spotlight her perspective on what exactly happened in the 2016 election.

Clinton’s first memoir with Simon & Schuster, “Living History,” was released in 2003. Her second, “Hard Choices,” came out in 2014, and recounts her time as Secretary of State under President Obama. “What Happened” is just over a month away, and may be Clinton’s most anticipated book yet.
