Hulu “Hillary” NYC Premiere NEW YORK (AP) — Huma Abedin, the close aide to Hillary Clinton and estranged wife of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, has a memoir coming out this fall.
Abedin’s Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds will be released Nov. 2, Scribner told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Abedin, 45, has known Clinton since she was a student at George Washington University, when she worked as an intern in 1996 for the then-first lady. She was an aide to Clinton during Clinton’s successful run for the U.S. Senate in 2000; deputy chief of staff during Clinton’s years as secretary of state in the first term of the Obama administration, […]
