(Newser) – Hillary Clinton has a lot of plans for 2017, including some reflections on her stunning loss last fall to Donald Trump. The former secretary of state, senator, and first lady is working on a book of personal essays that will come out this fall, Simon & Schuster tells the AP. The book, still untitled, is structured around hundreds of favorite quotations that have inspired her. The publisher said Clinton will use the quotes to "tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign" and into her thoughts on the future. "These are the words I live by," Clinton said in a statement. "These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times, and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer."

"I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers," Clinton added. Wednesday's announcement marks a growing re-emergence for Clinton, 69, who ran twice for the White House, hoping to become the country's first woman president. She has made few public comments since the election, but she attended Trump's inauguration earlier this month and has been critical of his policies. News reports have speculated Clinton may run for mayor of New York City this year, although her book plans and return to the Harry Walker Agency speakers bureau make that unlikely. Clinton's other project in the works: a reissue of her best-selling "It Takes a Village" in an illustrated edition for young people, Simon & Schuster tells the AP. Clinton will collaborate with Marla Frazee, a two-time Caldecott finalist for the year's outstanding picture book.
