Allow us to express our excitement in GIF form at publishing Amy Poehler’s book in 2014!

Read our press release below, or keep looking at the pretty, pretty GIFs.

It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, and HarperCollinsCanada have acquired rights to the first book by the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress Amy Poehler. Executive Editor Carrie Thornton negotiated the deal with Erin Malone and Kirby Kim of WME. HarperCollinsCanada Senior Editor Kate Cassaday negotiated the deal in tandem with Thornton. The book is tentatively scheduled for fall 2014.
 
Known for her roles as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation and in the feature films Baby Mama and Mean Girls, Poehler is an alumna of Saturday Night Live and is one of the founding members of the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB).  While inspired in part by Poehler’s interest in helping young women navigate the adult world, her original twist on the conventional memoir will have universal appeal.  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.
 
“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,” says Thornton. “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.”

So basically 2014 can’t come soon enough.

"[T]he strategy to propel that title to the top of the bestseller list is usually multi-pronged […] Express tremendous enthusiasm for new, innovative means of promotion – viral videos, mixtapes, wall murals, shaving the book title into the back fur of two dozen liquored-up Bonobo monkeys and releasing them at the American Library Association’s annual dinner – followed by tremendous disappointment that there isn’t money in the budget for any of them."
