Madeleine Albright works on WWII childhood memoir
NEW YORK – Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is working on a “part memoir and part cautionary tale” about Europe from 1937 to 1948.
HarperCollins said Tuesday that Albright’s “While I Was Growing Up” will be published in 2012.
Albright was born in Czechoslovakia in 1937 and was forced to leave after Nazi Germany gained control of it. She spent much of World War II in England.
Her book will combine personal memories, archival material and interviews to offer a “child’s view” and “adult’s broader perspective” of the era.
Albright was secretary of state during President Bill Clinton’s second term. Her other books include “Madam Secretary” and “The Mighty and the Almighty.”
