U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison has written an autobiography, "My Country 'Tis of Thee," set for release on Sept. 24
Ellison's 304-page memoir will take a "provocative look at America and what needs to change to accommodate different races and beliefs," while touching on topics ranging from race and immigration to President Obama and the rise of the Tea Party, according to a book description page.
The first Muslim elected to Congress and co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Ellison is the latest in a long line of Minnesota political figures to pen a memoir. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty released autobiographies during their presidential runs in 2011.
