Actress and talk show host Jada Pinkett-Smith is about to publish a currently-untitled memoir with Dey Street Books, a HarperCollins imprint, next fall.

“Jada Pinkett Smith chronicles lessons learned in the middle of a difficult but riveting journey — a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of non-public rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power,” read in a press release reported by People.

The announcement also states that within the book, Smith “reveals her unconventional upbringing in Baltimore — from the kid of two addicts to a promising theater student and a violent interlude as a petty drug-dealer — followed by a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend 2Pac, then falling in love with and marrying Will Smith, and a joyous embrace of motherhood.”

“In crisis at age 40, Jada recounts the excruciating selections she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way,” the publisher also said.

The host of Facebook’s Red Table Talk has experienced her justifiable share of trials and tribulations throughout her life, in addition to in several highly-publicized events in recent times. On this upcoming memoir, Smith wants to offer readers a deeper look into not only who she is as an entertainer, but in addition as a lady and human being.

“At the middle of all of the speculation and false stories is a lady who, like so many ladies, has needed to reconcile her personhood with the needs of those she loves,” stated Carrie Thornton, Dey Street Books VP. “This memoir is Jada giving the world her truth, taking readers on a journey from lost girl to woman warrior. It’s my great honor to take that journey together with her.”
