Clinton Memoir Gets a Title: 'Hard Choices'

 Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's much anticipated next memoir will be titled "Hard Choices," the book's publisher announced Friday.

The memoir will be Clinton's "inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges that she faced during her four years as America’s 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future," according to a release from Simon & Schuster, the book's publisher.

The 688-page book is an important one for Clinton – the overwhelming favorite to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination should she run. Critics have charged that her time as America's top diplomat was marked by no crowning achievement, while Clinton confidants have looked to frame those years as a success and see the book as the most potent way to showcase her achievements.

The publisher, who announced last week that the memoir would be available on June 10, 2014, also revealed the book's cover photo on Friday: A close up, black and white portrait of a smiling Clinton.

The book's release will also be coordinated with a summer book tour for the former senator and first lady.
