Ann Romney, the wife of former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, will be in Boise on Tuesday as part of the nationwide promotional tour for her new book, “In This Together: My Story.”

Romney will be doing a reading, followed by a Q&A and a book signing, starting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Deseret Books, 7147 Overland Road, in Boise.

Romney’s book details her life with multiple sclerosis as well as discusses her faith and “finding joy.”

Romney was diagnosed with the neurological disease in 1998. The Mayo Clinic says MS causes the immune system to attack the nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord, causing communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.

Romney says she was motivated to write the book because of the people she met while on the campaign trail with her husband in 2012.

Proceeds of the book go to the Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Learn more about the center here.
