NEW YORK (AP) - Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will give her first TV interview since being shot in January to Diane Sawyer of ABC News.

She’ll sit down for the interview with her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly. The extent of her participation will depend on how well she’s recovered by then.

Giffords was shot in the head while meeting with constituents Jan. 8.

ABC said Monday the discussion will air as part of a prime-time special Nov. 14. That’s the night before a book by Giffords and her husband will be published. It’s titled “Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope.”

Giffords has slowly emerged as her recovery from the near-fatal brain injury continues. Her office released a photo of her in June. And in August she appeared in Washington to vote on the debt ceiling bill.
