NEW CHAPTER: Sophia Amoruso will add a second title to her growing roster of media projects when “Nasty Galaxy” debuts and her book tour begins in October.
The “#GirlBoss” author and founder of e-tailer Nasty Gal is confirmed for seven stops on a book tour that begins in New York at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square on Oct. 4, the same day as the book’s release. That will be followed throughout the month with two stops in Brooklyn; Austin, Texas; San Francisco; Los Angeles, and Coral Gables, Fla., a spokesman for Amoruso confirmed.
This second book is expected to be much more image driven, unlike Amoruso’s first tome, released in 2014, which served as a biography of sorts on her journey in building Nasty Gal.
“Nasty Galaxy” comes with a foreword by Courtney Love, who teamed with Nasty Gal in January for an 18-piece, Nineties-inspired collection called Love, Courtney by Nasty Gal.
“I really like making books,” Amoruso told WWD in June at a party for her shared cover in the Forbes issue of the richest self-made women in America. “It has a beginning and end. And, yes, it is one piece of media, but it feels like you can be really creative with it. It’s like a legacy piece that sits on shelves forever and it’s a little different than an archive of clothes.”
Amoruso has a full plate with the book’s release and tour alone, but she’s also serving as consulting executive producer of a Netflix comedy series partially based on “#GirlBoss” that’s due out next year and continues with her #GirlBoss Radio podcast series.
