The book, titled "A Stolen Life," will cover Dugard's kidnapping and life with Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who confessed to her abduction and rape.

In addition to the hardcover and electronic book editions, the memoir will be released as an audio book narrated by Dugard herself.

Since returning to her family, Dugard has maintained a private life in California with her mother and her two daughters fathered by Phillip Garrido.

Simon & Schuster and CBS are owned by the same parent company.
