Gabrielle Union’s Real Life Book Club Tour
We’re Going to Need More Wine
U District store
Free with purchase of the book from University Book Store.

Actress and activist Gabrielle Union joins us for a discussion of her new book, We’re Going to Need More Wine. In the spirit of Amy Poehler’s Yes Please, Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl, and Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist, Union shares a powerful and personal collection of essays about gender, sexuality, race, beauty, Hollywood, and what it means to be a modern woman. She tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards, and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents with an emphasis on empathy, self-awareness, support, and confidence.

Actress and UW alumna Anna Faris joins us for a discussion of her funny and relatable debut book, Unqualified. Her comic memoir and first book shares her candid, sympathetic, and entertaining stories of love lost and won. Part memoir, part humorous, unflinching advice from her hit podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified, the book reveals her unique take on how to navigate the bizarre, chaotic, and worthwhile adventure of finding love. Hilarious, authentic, and actually useful.
