We're Going to Need More Wine Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True

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.


Gabrielle Union's Real Life Book Club Tour Gabrielle Union is an actress and activist. Currently she stars as the titular character in the critically acclaimed drama Being Mary Jane on BET. She is an outspoken activist for women's reproductive health and victims of sexual assault. She lives in Chicago.
