It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right? Everyone’s favorite ageless beauty, Gabrielle Union, is gearing up to release the follow-up to 2017’s New York Time’s bestselling memoir, We’re Going To Need More Wine, this fall. While her first release focused on broader issues of power, race, and her rise to fame, You Got Anything Stronger is said to be a deeper, more personal dive into all things Mrs. Gabrielle Union-Wade.
Fans of the actress-producer can expect to read about her surrogacy journey, navigating married life with hubby Dwyane Wade and how the industry has responded to the BLM protests of the last few years. Of course, we all know Gab isn’t one for biting her tongue, so this is sure to be quite the book.
Union-Wade had this to say about her own second offering; “I went into writing this second book with the intention of leaving nothing on the table. So much has happened since We’re Going to Need More Wine, a lot more healing, more therapy, more perspective, and more freedom to be me. When you feel free enough to share in a real way, that’s where the true transformation and evolution happens, that’s where you build community and why I feel empowered to share these stories now. I hope readers are able to see and understand me and through these stories, see and understand parts of themselves.”
You Got Anything Stronger will hit shelves on September 14th and is available for preorder right now everywhere books are sold! This news comes on the heels of quite another major announcement for the star as she and D. Wade are also releasing their first children’s book, “Shady Baby,” inspired by the couple’s adorable and always funny baby girl, Kaavia James. The book is said to be all about championing the courage and beauty of Black children.
We can all raise our glasses to more time with Gabrielle Union-Wade.
