Earlier today, the website for tabloid mag Us Weekly reported that the memoir, titled Through the Storm, would hit the bookstore shelves on Aug. 21, almost a month ahead of the original street date. However, they should have done some fact checking — a source inside Thomas Nelson, the book’s publisher, confirms to OK! that Lynne’s first stab at writing will indeed hit stands as planned on Sept. 16.
