Tegan And Sara To Publish Memoir


Canadian pop duo Tegan and Sara announced Tuesday they will publish a memoir next fall.

The book, entitled High School, is described as “the revelatory and unique coming-of-age story of the identical twins from Calgary.”

It will consist of alternating chapters written from each sister’s point of view.

“The book is a raw account of the music, drugs, alcohol, love and friendship they explored in their formative years,” reads a release. “A transcendent story of first loves and first songs, it captures the tangle of discordant and parallel memories of two sisters who grew up in distinct ways even as they lived just down the hall from one another.”

The Quin sisters said they have spent 20 years giving simple answers to questions like “How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara?”

They explained: “Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”

Tegan and Sara are also set to start work in the new year on their ninth studio album.
