Mayor's book due out late summer or fall
Business reasons -- that's the only explanation a publicist at Cormorant Books would offer for why Mayor David Miller's new book, that had been tentatively scheduled for release this month, is being held until at least later in the summer.
She wouldn't speculate on whether the date was tied to the fall municipal election.
A first draft of, Witness to a City: David Miller's Toronto, was done in April and the mayor seemed pleased at the prospect of becoming an author.
The book isn't an autobiography or a memoir of his time as mayor, but rather Miller's take on some of the extraordinary Torontonians he's met since taking the helm of the horseshoe in 2003.
Although it's not expected to be a J.K. Rowling or Dan Brown type of blockbuster, the mayor has plans for the proceeds, a scholarship that honours his late mother, Joan Miller.
