In Sorry Not Sorry, actor, producer, and political activist Alyssa Milano offers an unvarnished, funny, and heartbreaking collection of powerful personal essays about her life and career, the humanitarianism that has become central to her story, and reflections that engage deeply with this moment of global upheaval.

Milano has spent almost her entire life in the public eye; she earned her big break at ten years old when she was cast as Tony Danza’s daughter in “Who’s the Boss?” Her call to activism took root early as well; at age fifteen, Milano kissed Ryan White, who was HIV-positive, on “The Phil Donahue Show” to demonstrate that the disease could not be spread by casual contact. Ever since, she has made her platform as an actor her launching pad for doing good in the world and furthering the causes she holds dear, from reproductive rights to gun safety to sexual harassment. 

Sorry Not Sorry includes chapters on family, parenting, activism, allyship, growing up famous, friendship, and more. A memoir of the life Milano has lived and the things she’s seen and experienced, the book is also a manifesto about the importance of taking care of one another if we want to live in a better world.

Milano’s credits include Melrose Place,” “Charmed,” and more than twenty films. As a political activist, she is best known for helping to relaunch the #MeToo movement in 2017. Milano will be in conversation with E. J. Dionne Jr., a professor at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a columnist for the Washington Post, and a visiting professor at Harvard University.
