Jennifer Hudson book signing at Lincoln Park Barnes & Noble

She’s gonna tell you

This almost came and went under the radar. Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer Jennifer Hudson can now add author to her resume. She comes to Dallas to sign copies of her newest inspirational book I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down at the Barnes and Noble store in Lincoln Park. The memoir details her loss of over 80 lbs. and learning to adhere to a new healthy lifestyle. Sounds just like the right book for the new year.

Just so you know, the store has special instructions. From Barnes and Noble.
