Anna KendrickPitch Perfect actress Anna Kendrick has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint. Kendrick (pictured, via) plans to write a collection of autobiographical essays.

The not-yet-titled book is slated for publication in Fall 2016. With this project, Kendrick will discuss her childhood in New England and her Hollywood career.

Kendrick gave this statement in the press release: “I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon?”
