Jenny Slate Is Releasing a Feminist Essay Collection with Little, Brown and Company
Jenny Slate just bagged a book deal with Little, Brown, and Company, Entertainment Weekly reports.
A part feminist, part fable collection, the actresss’ debut anthology will revolve around her first-hand experiences as a female navigating misogyny. According to EW, Slate’s book will also explore concepts like the fear associated with feeling defenseless and repudiated, and comprises other wacky viewpoints like “a deer venturing into a meadow” and “a globe of fruit plucked from its branch.”
“There is so much natural magic to being a human, and in feminism as a movement and a way of life,” Slate said in a statement given to EW. “I’m thrilled that Little, Brown, and Co. has given me a chance to explore and explain where I find this magic, and how it feels to be alive and a woman in today’s wild world. Let’s get going!”
While Slate’s book has yet been named, her collection is planned for publication in 2019.
