Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino has inked a deal to author a book chronicling his life, career, and long reign in City Hall’s corner office.

“It’s a story of my 20 years as mayor, the things we’ve dealt with, and the changes we’ve seen,” Menino said during an interview in his City Hall office on Friday, which marked the 20th anniversary of his swearing in as acting mayor in 1993.

The book will be co-written by Jack Beatty, an author and political analyst for public radio.

The book, which is expected to be released next spring, is being published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Menino did not disclose how much he is being paid.
