Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P Henson is known for many roles — as Cookie on Empire, Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Shug in Hustle & Flow, and Detective Joss Carter on Person of Interest, among others. She’s won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy, too. Now Henson is adding the title of author to her resume. In her book, Around the Way Girl: A Memoir, the actress “shares her rocky road to fame in a bona fide hit memoir” says Essence Magazine. On Amazon, 90 percent of the reviews of Around the Way Girl are 5 stars (out of 5 stars).
Around the Way Girl: A Memoir was co-written by Denene Millner who helped pen Steve Harvey’s #1 New York Times Bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. P.S. Empire airs Wednesdays at 9pm on FOX.
