We’re Going to Need More Wine

Actress Gabrielle Union shares her truth in an honest, frank, and funny way. Some stories will unexpectedly cause you to burst out laughing, while others will bring you to tears. Topics run the gamut of filming and Hollywood life (from a nostalgic look at 10 Things I Hate About You to the frustration of not having a hairstylist on set who had done Black hair), racism and colorism, family and friends, love and trauma. Her essay on raising Black boys is especially poignant.

We're Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True (2017) is candid, relevant, and engaging. Give this book a listen—Union narrates her story. Both the audiobook and ebook are available on Hoopla today.
