Amy Poehler Inks Book Deal With HarperCollins

Posted on January 31, 2013

Amy Poehler just inked a book deal with It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. The Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress who currently stars as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation and who was on Saturday Night Live for years recently got rave reviews for her co-hosting gig with Tina Fey for The Golden Globes.

In a release HarperCollins described the book as "An illustrated, non-linear diary full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons, the book will be a unique and engaging experience from one of today's most talented and beloved stars."

Executive Editor Carrie Thornton said of the deal, "When I first talked to Amy about a book I was blown away by her creativity and her passion for the project. I am now so excited to be working with her and making her ideas a reality. Amy's intelligence, comedic genius, and care for her craft shines through everything she does, and I know that this book will be no exception. To have the chance to work with an artist of this caliber is every editor's great hope, and I can't wait to see how this book evolves."

Amy's book, which as yet does not have a title, is scheduled to hit bookshelves in the fall of 2014.
