Congresswoman Giffords grants 1st interview to Diane Sawyer

Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will give her first TV interview since being shot in January to Diane Sawyer of ABC News.

Giffords, who was shot while meeting with constituents on Jan. 8, will be interviewed with her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly. ABC said Monday that the discussion will air as part of a prime-time special Nov. 14.

That’s the night before a book by Giffords and Kelly 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. In August she appeared in Washington to vote on the debt ceiling bill.
