 Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has announced he will publish a personal memoir.

In a press release, publisher HarperCollins Canada called the book — which will be published in English and French — "candid."

The autobiography will cover the 42-year-old's childhood at 24 Sussex Drive through to his McGill University days and his current political career.

According to the release, the book will also boast "anecdotes, personal reflections and never-before-seen photographs" from Trudeau's personal collection.

The memoir is set to be released this fall.

All proceeds will be donated to the domestic programs of the Canadian Red Cross Society.

"I am pleased to have this opportunity to tell my life's story, particularly as a teacher, Member of Parliament and father," Trudeau said in the release.

"These experiences and the many people who have played a role in my life have all shaped my outlook on politics, public service and what it means to be Canadian. ... I look forward to sharing this journey with you."
