Congrats to “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson! The Oscar nominated and Golden Globe winning-actress is gearing up to release her new memoires, Around the Way Girl.

According to the book’s press release, Around the Way Girl  is an “inspiring and funny book about family, friends, the hustle required to make it from DC to Hollywood, and the joy of living in your own truth.”

Inside, Henson will open up about her father, her mother, life as a single mother and the pitfalls with being a Black Actress in Hollywood. She will also dish about her stellar training at Howard University and of course her memorable on screen characters such as Yvette, Queenie, Shug and Cookie.
