Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks — a group that has been at the forefront of organizing Tea Party rallies, events and activists — has signed a contract with Harper Collins to release a book on the movement, The Daily Caller has learned.

The book’s working title is “Give Me Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto” and will be primarily authored by Armey and FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe, according to Brendan Steinhauser, the group’s Director of Federal and State Campaigns.

The book, slated to be released before the November elections, was described by Steinhauser as “part narrative, part manifesto.”

The narrative part of the book will include stories about several activists, like Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, to show what type of people are involved in the movement. The second part will include an “activism guide” that will include the argument that the Tea Party movement is “very mainstream” and will not dissolve, but rather be a “permanent force to hold politicians accountable.”

FreedomWorks is working to complete a first draft of the manuscript by this week.
