Celebrating the announcement on Instagram, Lili shared a little bit more about how the book of poems came to be.

"One year ago, I decided I wanted to share my poetry with the world. It’s scary to reveal a part of myself that I don’t often show, but I like to consider this book as more of a story rather than a confession of thought," she wrote.

She continued: "This book means a lot to me and I’m very grateful to be in the position to finally share it."

Lili has been known to share her poems and other writing on Tumblr. She even shared a moving tribute to her Riverdale co-star Luke Perry, who passed away after suffering a stroke earlier this year.

Swimming Lessons hits shelves May 5.
