BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has penned a new book chronicling her life story from her working class roots in Oklahoma to a seat in the Senate representing Massachusetts.

“A Fighting Chance” is also described by the publisher as a look at the conflict between large institutions and the needs of everyday citizens.

The book includes Warren’s work in the Senate and her 2012 campaign to unseat incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown. It also looks at her efforts to establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Warren is planning a book tour of the state on April 24 in Cambridge, with stops in Worcester, Springfield and Boston. The events are open to the public.

The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, by an imprint of Henry Holt and Company.
