Amy Poehler's going to let you read her diary
Book will be 'full of humor and honesty,' star says
Leave it to Amy Poehler to write a memoir that sounds nothing like the typical tome.
The "Parks and Recreation" star, 41, is set to publish an "illustrated, non-linear diary" via HarperCollins' It Books imprint.
Poehler wanted the book to be universal in appeal, but was also inspired by her interest in guiding young women as they transition to adulthood.
We can expect the book - scratch that, non-linear diary - to be "full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons."
"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," Executive Editor Carrie Thornton said in a statement. "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."
Poehler's book is tentatively scheduled to arrive in the fall of 2014.
