Pop twin duo Tegan and Sara have announced their first memoir titled High School scheduled to be released in fall of 2019 by MCD. The story follows the pair growing up in Calgary, Alberta in the ’90s while facing hardships including their parents’ divorce and struggling with self-identity
The sisters said about High School, “How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara? We have spent twenty years answering those complicated questions with simple answers. 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 have released eight studio albums and are going into the studio next year to record number nine. They have sold over a million records and have received several awards including three Juno Awards, a GRAMMY® nomination, and 2018 New York Civil Liberties Union Award. The two also have their own nonprofit called the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for LGTBQ+ rights, which includes health, economics, and overall representation.
