Viking Books announced Wednesday that it would publish the book, according to media outlets. The memoir is set to come out Sept. 27. Viking Books is owned by Penguin Random House. Doe's 7,390-word victim impact statement, which she read in a Palo Alto courtroom in June 2016, drew international attention.
