Insecure’ Star Yvonne Orji Lands Book Deal!

The actress and comedian signed with Flatiron Books, which will publish her faith-based advice book, ‘Bamboozled by Jesus.’

Via Hollywood Reporter:

Yvonne Orji, who currently stars as lawyer Molly Carter on HBO’s hit series Insecure, has nabbed a book deal with Flatiron Books.

The publisher will release Orji’s new book, Bamboozled by Jesus: How God Tricked Me Into the Life of My Dreams (and 20 Lessons I Learned Along the Way).

In the book, which does not yet have a release date, the actress and comedian, who has been outspoken about her faith, interprets biblical stories and metaphors to fit into current times.

Bamboozled by Jesus is described as a frank and fresh advice book, filled with one woman’s authentic journey to understand her life and the nuggets of wisdom she’s uncovered along the way. Orji covers 20 life lessons gleaned from her own experience, her family and the Bible — from how to save for a rainy day to building the ark before the flood, from thinking outside the box to realizing you’re not special (while instead making yourself available).

Along with appearing in the first three seasons of Insecure, Orji starred in Night School with Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart and is developing her own semiautobiographical series, First Gen, about a Nigerian-American family.

The North American rights to Bamboozled by Jesus were acquired by Bob Miller, president of Flatiron Books, with Sarah Murphy to edit. Orji is repped by UTA.

 

Congratulations Yvonne Orji!

Those Who Give A Damn’ is a story of struggle, adversity and the will to succeed. Join Duvalier Malone as he details how he overcame tragedy in the best way possible: in the service of his fellow man and woman. Duvalier seeks to give a manual on how to serve humanity. As a small town boy who chased his dreams and found the path to manhood that was forged by the footsteps of those who paved the way, Duvalier was blessed with the tools to give back to his community. He now wants to share those tools with others, by showing through example how to rise above one’s circumstances and achieve in spite of the hardships and obstacles that lay in one’s way. While agonizing over his own place in the world, Duvalier discovered that his measure was hidden in his own courage, strength and hope. This moment of achievement is chronicled in the memoir of this community servant who wishes to inspire others the way he was inspired by those who went before him.
“In today’s political environment it is important that we use our voices and circle of influence to initiate change within our community said Malone.” If you’re planning to meet him and get a copy of his book then details about where the signing will be held are below.
