Boston-bred actress-writer Mindy Kaling has a name for her second book. The follow-up to her best-selling personal essay collection, 2011’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns),” will be called “Why Not Me?,” according to an interview with Kaling in the Los Angeles Times. Kaling has said a second book of essays would focus on her TV show and on the death of her mother, Dr. Swati Chokalingam, who worked locally at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center.
