Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans on tackling some heavy issues in her memoir, but she added some levity to a discussion about the book on Wednesday, joking about what she might call it.

When asked about the title of her upcoming book, Clinton cited some of the funny suggestions offered up by Washington Post readers. "The Scrunchie Chronicles," Clinton said, "That actually is a keeper. That's on the short list."

That mock title references Clinton's notorious predilection for wearing a scrunchie -- a hair tie that's long been out of fashion.

The former secretary of state -- and potential 2016 presidential candidate -- was talking about her book-writing process in a speech to the Association of American Publishers. Clinton said her book, expected to come out this summer, will be "about my experiences at the State Department, our rapidly changing and increasingly interdependent world, and the challenges facing us in the 21st century," the Washington Post reports.

The book will be Clinton's fourth.
