Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' new book includes "a candid account of my relationship and interactions with the press. And some reporters come out a lot better than others!"

What's happening: Gearing up for a possible run for Arkansas governor, Sanders will be out Sept. 8 — during the home sprint of the presidential race — with "Speaking for Myself," from St. Martin’s Press.

  • Sanders says: "From Arkansas to the White House and back, I'm excited to tell my story about the challenges of being a working mom at the highest level of American politics."

Reality check: A book tour means Sanders, who had tense relations with the press, will be pushed to explain her approach.
