Lea Michele is Writing a Book

Like her fake persona, Jewish singer/actress Lea Michele has attended many many auditions, and plans to share those experiences in a new book.

The “Glee” star, best known as the character Rachel Berry, has just signed a book deal with Harmony Books, a Random House Inc. imprint, according to the New York Times.

Harmony announced the news today that her book, “Brunette Ambition,” will come out spring of 2014, and will be a book that is “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide.” The book will be Michele’s journey “from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television,” and will offer some behind-the-scenes perspectives on her time on Broadway.” Michele hopes to give “practical advice and lessons” for young girls hoping to follow in her footsteps towards show-business.

“There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today,” Michele said in a statement. “But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
