U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has written a book chronicling her life story, from her working-class roots in Oklahoma to a seat in the Senate representing Massachusetts.

The publisher describes "A Fighting Chance" as a look at the conflict between large institutions and the needs of everyday citizens.

The book details the Democrat's work in the Senate and her 2012 campaign to unseat incumbent Republican Scott Brown. It also looks at her efforts to establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Warren plans a book tour of the state beginning April 24 in Cambridge, with stops in Worcester (WUS'-tur), Springfield and Boston. The events are open to the public.

The book is scheduled to be published April 22 by an imprint of Henry Holt and Company.
