Oscar-winner and Austin institution Matthew McConaughey announced the publication of his new book "Greenlights" on Wednesday.


In a video posted to Twitter, McConaughey said that, two years ago, he took all the journals in his life that are filled with anything that made him laugh, cry, question or kept him up at night, and—with that—wrote "Greenlights." According to McConaughey, it's a book filled with his "sights and seens, nices and means, successes and failures, stories, people, places, poems, prayers, prescribes and a whole lot of bumper stickers."

McConaughey recently teased his new project, talking about the significance of green lights.


"Greenlights" is available for preorder at greenlights.com.
