Alex Trebek memoir to be released in July

Canadian Alex Trebek, diagnosed last year with stage four pancreatic cancer, has written a memoir.

Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday that The Answer Is: Reflections on My Life will come out July 21, the day before his 80th birthday.

According to the publisher, the longtime Jeopardy!¬†host will share “illuminating personal anecdotes” along with thoughts on everything from his favourite guests to spirituality and philanthropy.

“I want people to know a little more about the person they have been cheering on for the past year,” Trebek writes in his book.
