Bernie Sanders' supporters have one thing to look forward to: a new book

Bernie Sanders may have waited until the last minute to endorse his former rival Hillary Clinton, but he wasted no time moving onto the next thing: a new book.

Sanders’ “Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In” was announced Thursday by its publisher, Thomas Dunne, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press.

“Our Revolution” will be published on Nov. 15. That’s exactly one week after the general election.

What that means is that a week after either Democrat Clinton or Republican Donald Trump is elected president, Sanders will have a means and reason to discuss his own ideas with the public once again.

“’Our Revolution’ will be an inside account of [Bernie’s] extraordinary campaign, and will also provide a blueprint for future political action,” Thomas Dunne wrote in a statement, continuing, “Its message: the fight has just begun.”

That is sure to rankle Clinton supporters, who have seen their candidate’s poll numbers slide drastically against Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, this week. Although Clinton used to lead Trump by a wide margin, a New York Times/CBS poll released Thursday  had the two candidates tied.

The race between the two formally gets underway after their party conventions. The Republicans gather next week in Cleveland; the Democrats the following week in Philadelphia.

As the presidential race proceeds without Sanders, the senator from Vermont will have a book to finish.

The announcement about “Our Revolution” has more details: “In the book, Sanders shares experiences from the campaign trail and outlines his ideas for continuing a political revolution to fight for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for all.”

Publisher Thomas Dunne continues, “To say we are excited is an understatement. Bernie’s ideas and plan for action may well change the lives of millions of people for the better. It is an honor to be involved with the book.”
