Poehler puts orig­i­nal twist on mem­oirs

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

Fey had a mil­lion-seller with a book of es­says called Bossy­pants. Amy Poehler? She has a deal for a book that ap­pears to be a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing. The star of Parks and Recre­ation and former Satur­day Night Live per­former has an agree­ment with It Books for an ‘‘il­lus­trated, non-lin­ear di­ary’’. It Books, a pop cul­ture im­print of HarperCollins Pub­lish­ers, an­nounced that the book is cur­rently un­ti­tled and sched­uled for 2014. Fi­nan­cial terms were not dis­closed. ‘‘Her orig­i­nal twist on the con­ven­tional mem­oir will have uni­ver­sal ap­peal,’’ says It Books in a state­ment. ‘‘An il­lus­trated, non-lin­ear di­ary full of hu­mour and hon­esty and brim­ming with true sto­ries, fic­tional anec­dotes and life lessons, the book will be a unique and en­gag­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.’’ It’s the first book for Poehler (pic­tured), who re­cently co-hosted the Golden Globes cer­e­mony with Fey, her long-time friend and pro­fes­sional col­lab­o­ra­tor. Poehler will be edited by It Books’ Car­rie Thorn­ton, who said in a state­ment that af­ter first talk­ing to the come­di­enne she was ‘‘blown away by her cre­ativ­ity and her pas­sion.’’
