On Monday, February 10 author and animal advocate Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt takes the time to explore international star Jessica Simpson’s memoir, Open Book. Simpson’s story reveals her inner monologue and most intimate struggles while also examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others yet burdened her with an almost crippling need to please.

Recording the audiobook of Open Book was one of the most purposeful experiences of my career. It broke me down both physically and emotionally, but I hope everyone who listens will feel my soul and hear my truth through my voice. The new songs I am releasing with the audiobook are what inspired me to write the memoir and they are the musical counterpart to the story. I am so proud of this creation. I hope you love it. 💚 #OpenBook
