We Can’t Wait to Read Amy Poehler’s Book!
‘Parks and Recreation’ star Amy Poehler is writing a book—and we can’t wait to read it! Get all the deets here!
We loved her on SNL; we adore her on Parks and Recreation; we rejoiced when she hosted the Golden Globes with longtime pal Tina Fey; and now we’ve got another reason to love Amy Poehler: She’s writing a book!
I know, I know—celebs left and right are writing books these days (and many of them rely heavily on ghostwriters). But we’re pretty sure that like Tina Fey’s Bossypants and Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, this one is definitely going to be worth a read.
According to the New York Times, Harper Collins’ pop culture imprint, It Books, just acquired the as-yet-untitled book, which will be Amy’s first. It’s planned for a fall 2014 publication, and we can’t wait!
But because this is Amy Poehler we’re talking about here, don’t expect it to be your run-of-the-mill hardcover. Described by It Books as “an illustrated, nonlinear diary full of humor and honest and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons,” it promises to be a refreshing twist on the conventional memoir. No word yet on whether Amy will go mano-a-mano with Lena Dunham for the coveted title of Funniest Book Written by a Television Star (which, by the way, is an award that I just made up), but we kind of hope that they become best friends instead.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it!
