(CNN) - Astronaut Mark Kelly and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will write their memoirs in an untitled book to be published by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
The book will tell the Arizona congresswoman's survival and recovery story from the Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson that left her severely wounded and killed six others.
According to a statement from the publisher, the couple will also include stories about their relationship, Gifford's work in politics, and Kelly's career as a Desert Storm combat pilot and recent commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour's final flight.
"Gabby and I are forever grateful for the heartfelt support we've received over these many months. We are looking forward to sharing our story," said Kelly in the statement.
Wall Street Journal Columnist Jeffrey Zaslow will collaborate with Giffords and Kelly on the book, and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity in Arizona.
A publication date has not been determined.
