San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro Writing an Autobiography

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Fresh off his Pre-K 4 SA win, we learn today that rising star Julian Castro is writing an autobiography that will be on bookshelves by the 2014 midterm elections.

Castro has teamed with the New York-based Little, Brown and Co. publisher. “We think Julián has a very universal story, filled with drama, struggle and achievement and it will appeal to a wide range of readers across the country,” Little, Brown spokeswoman Nicole Dewey said in an email to Josh Baugh of the San Antonio Express News. “We have plans for a major national marketing and publicity campaign.”

Brown and Co. has already given Castro an advance for the book, but Castro won't discuss any more details. Smart – Castro is doing a lot of very good work in San Antonio and he probably doesn't want any national distractions interfering with his work.

I'm looking forward to this book, and I don't often read political autobiographies because of their risk for self-aggrandizement. Castro gave an awesome speech at the DNC, and then he went home and won a campaign for a slightly higher tax that will give 30,000 San Antonio kids pre-K and change their lives entirely.
