Her book SORRY I’M LATE, I DIDN’T WANT TO COME: An Introvert’s Year of Living Dangerously is out May 30. It’s about the year she spent living as an extrovert: talking to strangers, performing comedy, traveling solo to make friends on the road and other nightmares. Extrovert mentors like psychologists, charisma coaches, stand-up comedians and others guide her throughout her year. Much to our excitement, we recently found out that Good Girls Eat Dinner is mentioned in the book and Jessica will be selling and signing advance copies on the night.
