South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is about to become a published author.

W.W. Norton and Company announced this week that it will publish Buttigieg’s book, titled “Shortest Way Home: One Mayor’s Challenge And A Model For America’s Future.”

According to the book’s description, it promises to tell the story of how South Bend has become a blueprint for the future of American renewal. It also promises to detail how Buttigieg came out as gay and found “love and acceptance” after returning from Afghanistan and leaving a business career to become Mayor in 2011.

The book clocks in at 352 pages and will be available in hardcover when it comes out in February 2019.
