Caitlyn Jenner is planning a memoir

NEW YORK (AP) Caitlyn Jenner has a book deal.

Grand Central Publishing announced Tuesday that it plans a spring 2017 publication for a memoir by Jenner, the transgender activist and reality star and former Olympic athlete. The book, currently untitled, will be co-written by ''Friday Night Lights'' author Buzz Bissinger, who wrote a Vanity Fair cover story about Jenner.

According to Grand Central, the memoir will follow Jenner's life ''from Bruce to Caitlyn, and her brave transition into womanhood.'' In a statement issued through her publisher, Jenner said that with life ''moving so quickly,'' she welcomed the chance to ''slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey.''

Jenner, 66, first announced last April during an interview with Diane Sawyer that she was becoming a woman.
