Taraji P. Henson announced on Instagram that her memoir Around The Way Girl will be released this Fall in October. In the memoir Taraji shares stories about her father, a vietnam war veteran and her mother who dealt with violence at home and on the streets of Washington D.C. The Empire star also touches upon her college experience at Howard University and being a single mother.

“I’m just a girl who went to Hollywood with my son, $700, and a dream. There were some detours along the way, some heartache, and a whole lot of hustle. My family, friends, and fans always keep it real with me. Know that I’m going to keep it real with you. Check out my story. I hope you laugh with me and cry with me and maybe get a little bit inspired.”

The memoir will be released on October 11.  To pre order Around The Way Girl click here. Check out the Instagram post below.
