Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick wants to become Author Kwame Kilpatrick.
The Motor City’s disgraced leader is working with a writer on a book will allow the imprisoned ex-Detroit Mayor to tell his side of the story of his life.
The book will be titled “Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick,” and plans call for its publication when Kilpatrick is released from prison. And it could also become a movie.
Kilpatrick is in prison for violating the terms of his probation on obstruction of justice and assault convictions. The federal government brought fraud and tax charges against Kilpatrick in June. Kilpatrick, his father Bernard Kilpatrick and three others were indicted last week on federal corruption charges.
