NEW YORK (AP) — A man who lost both legs in the Boston Marathon bombings but managed to help identify the perpetrators is working on a memoir.

Jeff Bauman has a deal with Grand Central Publishing for “Stronger,” scheduled to come out in April, one year after the attacks that killed three and injured many others. He is working on the book with Bret Witter, whose previous works include such best sellers as “Dewey” and “Until I Say Goodbye.”

Grand Central announced Wednesday that the book would focus on Bauman’s experiences during and after the bombings. He had been at the finish line, waiting for his girlfriend to complete the race, when the bombs exploded.

Bauman is currently a motivational speaker and said in statement that he wanted his book to “inspire others.”
