Fans of Anna Kendrick’s self-deprecating humor and witty Twitter account won’t have to wait too long to read the comic-actress’ forthcoming essay collection, Scrappy Little Nobody. The book will be published on Nov. 15 by Touchstone, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The Pitch Perfect star announced the book title and release date on Twitter Monday.

Scrappy Little Nobody will cover amusing anecdotes from Kendrick’s life, from her New England upbringing to eventually starring in films like Up in the Air. Kedrick joins a line of celebrities who have gotten book deals to write funny essay collections in recent years.

“I’m excited to publish my first book,” Kendrick said in a release, “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? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!”
