Boston Mayor Tom Menino will write a book about his 20-year career in the Massachusetts political realm.
“It’s a story of my 20 years as mayor, the things we’ve dealt with and the changes we’ve seen,” Menino told the Boston Globe in his City Hall office Friday.
He will co-write the book with author Jack Beatty, who is known for his previous work, "The Rascal King," about the life of former Gov. James Michael Curley.
“[We have] a longstanding relationship with Boston and are continually impressed by the leadership of Mayor Menino and what he has meant to this city and the people of Boston,” Gary Gentel, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s trade publishing president, told the Globe. “We are excited to publish such an important chronicle of the city’s modern history.”
Menino started as Boston's mayor in 1993. He will step down at the end of this term.
