Grand Central Publishing announced Tuesday that it plans a spring 2017 publication for a memoir by Jenner, the transgender activist and reality star and former Olympic athlete. The book, currently untitled, will be co-written by "Friday Night Lights" author Buzz Bissinger, who wrote a Vanity Fair cover story about Jenner.

According to Grand Central, the memoir will follow Jenner's life "from Bruce to Caitlyn, and her brave transition into womanhood." In a statement issued through her publisher, Jenner said that with life "moving so quickly," she welcomed the chance to "slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey."

Jenner, 66, first announced last April during an interview with Diane Sawyer that she was becoming a woman.
