Dugard memoir to be published this summer
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Jaycee Lee Dugard, the South Lake Tahoe girl who was kidnapped at the age of 11 and held captive for 18 years, will publish a memoir July 12, according to a Monday statement from publisher Simon & Schuster.
“A Stolen Life,” was written by Dugard, now 31, and will cover the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present, according to the statement.
“In her stark, compelling narrative, she opens up about what she experienced, including how she feels now since she was found.”
Simultaneous with the release of the hardcover edition and eBook, S&S Audio will publish an unabridged audio book, read by Dugard, according to the statement.
Since she resurfaced in August 2009, Dugard has maintained her privacy while living in Northern California with her mother and her two daughters fathered by abductor Phillip Garrido.
