Senator Raphael Warnock, whose dramatic runoff win in Georgia helped flip the Senate to Democrats, will be out in June with a memoir called "A Way Out of No Way," Penguin Press announces.

Driving the news: Warnock, 52, Georgia's first Black senator, promises to "call out the uncomfortable truths that shape contemporary American life and summon us all to a higher moral ground."

From the announcement: "Raised in the Kayton Homes housing projects in Savannah as the eleventh of twelve children of a World War II veteran father and a mother who'd picked cotton and tobacco in south Georgia as a teenager, Senator Warnock traveled through Morehouse and Union Theological Seminary on his way to becoming the youngest Senior Pastor in the history of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church."
