Harper Collins will distribute “I Am These Truths” on Sept. 22.
According to Hostin’s publisher “In her iconic style of no-nonsense, straightforward, Sunny introduces and shares her cozy battles with fruitfulness and individual strife, and considers the high-stakes cases and stories she took a shot at as a prosecutor and during her time at CNN, Fox News, ABC, and The View. The distributor adds that “Timely, poignant, and moving, I Am These Truths is the story of a woman living between two worlds, and learning to bridge them together to fight for what’s right.”
Hostin was raised by very young parents and she has opened up in the past about her troublesome youth. In November 2019, Hostin showed up on Tamron Hall’s coordinated daytime television show and clarified how she was perpetually changed after she saw her uncle’s cutting as a kid.
“It’s something I don’t talk about a lot, but I thought it was time for me to start talking about it,” Hostin told Hall. “When I was about 7, I saw my uncle stabbed in front of me. [He was] my father’s only brother and I adored him. He was the fun uncle.”
“Just the two of us were there,” she proceeded. “He was dating someone who turned out to be married, and her husband came in and attacked him. I remember as a child just trying to stop the bleeding, just being so traumatized, thinking, ‘Please Uncle Ed, don’t die, don’t die, don’t die.’ And we never talked about it as a family, ever.”
While her uncle endures that particular assault, he passed on a couple of years after the fact because of complications from the stabbing. The aggressor was never in jail.
Hostin said on Tamron Hall that one thing about her uncle’s case that she never entirely got over — nobody was indicted. The police were not so much intrigued, and she was in graduate school having thought such as she wants to be a prosecutor; she does not want to be a defense attorney. She wants to get the guy that did that to her uncle. And as a columnist, she needed to offer a voice to the voiceless. She needed to recount to those accounts.
“I recently said to my dad, ‘What happened to Uncle Ed is why I do what I do,'” she included. “And he said, ‘You remember that?’ They thought that by moving me from the Bronx, putting me in a different school, not talking about it, that it wouldn’t have an impact. And that’s why I think as families, we have to talk about it.”
In her private diary, Hostin clarifies how she got away from poverty by studying and doing research a lot in school. She wound up getting a scholarship to receive higher education such as college and law school, before turning into a federal prosecutor. Hostin then switched into reporting. She showed up on CNN as a lawful investigator and host, just as different outlets like ABC, before accepting a new job as a co-host of “The View” in 2016. Hostin additionally expounds on a portion of her greatest cases as a prosecutor and stories as a columnist beyond sincere individual stories.
Her uncle’s demise is likewise part of the explanation she facilitated and became the executive produced a six-episode documentary series, “Truth About Murder with Sunny Hostin”, on Investigation Discovery channel. In the show, Hostin returned to the absolute most confusing unsolved murders in the U.S.
According to PEOPLE, in October 2019, she told them that she has made it her objective to have a transparent discussion about things. She also added that “When you go through trauma, it’s important to talk about it. And that’s what I’m doing.”
