Dunham, who just released her debut essay collection Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned”, announced the project on Friday at the New Yorker Festival, the Huffington Post reports.
“This is actually my first time talking about it publicly,” Dunham said at the event. “I’m very excited about it. I’m not sure when it’ll happen, but I’m in the process of [working on it].”
The book follows a thirteenth-century teenager who finds clever ways to scare off the unsuitable suitors her father tries to marry her off to.
