Guess who else got a book deal? Shonda Rhimmmmmmmmmmmmes *Oprah voice* Coming out later this year from Simon & Schuster, The Book of Yes, will reflect on a year in Rhimes’ life where she said yes to unexpected invitations. Rhimes has talked about how she really prefers to stay home with her tiny humans watching TV and cuddling, you know, introvert living (I can relate). But because she accepted this challenge to say yes, she had a year of amazing experiences she wouldn’t have otherwise had. Although I doubt that I’d ever be brave enough to put myself out there like she did, I can’t wait to read about her adventures this November.
Wendell Pierce of Waiting to Exhale, The Wire and Treme' fame is a New Orleans native. He’s been instrumental in bringing food options to food deserts in the city and in rebuilding his beloved New Orleans. He has a new book coming out in September, The Wind in the Reeds: A Storm, A Play, and the City That Would Not Be Broken, which talks about his experience in Hurricane Katrina and his rebuilding efforts afterward.
