Carrie Brownstein Lands Deal for a Memoir

Sleater-Kinney co-founder and Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein has inked a book deal with Riverhead Books.

According to the publisher, the book will tell the story of “her life in music, from ardent fan to pioneering female guitarist to comedic performer and luminary of the independent rock world.” Jud Laghi from the Jud Laghi Agency negotiated the deal with editor Megan Lynch.

In addition to working as a songwriter, Brownstein has written for The New York Times, The Believer, Slate and a Twitter page with 36,000 followers. Earlier this year, Grand Central acquired a Portlandia inspired book from Brownstein and her co-star, Fred Armisen.
