Wab Kinew has signed a two-book deal with Penguin Canada, the publisher said in a press release Thursday.

Kinew, director of indigenous inclusion at the University of Winnipeg as well as a musician and sometimes-broadcaster, will have a memoir released on Penguin’s Viking imprint in fall 2015. The deal also includes an illustrated children’s title.

"I was given the gift of helping my late father, who experienced the worst of the residential school era, on his very powerful journey to foster spiritual reconciliation," Kinew said in the press release. "Through sharing our story, I believe we can contribute to the conversations happening between Canadians and indigenous peoples—but also to share some lessons on what it means to be a good human being."
