Grand Central To Publish Portlandia Guide Book

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the creators and stars of the IFC’s Portlandia, are writing a travel guide to the television show that is due out this fall.

Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors will look like any other guidebook with walling tours of the city and information about landmarks and residents, but it will do so from the show’s comical perspective.

Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, will publish the book in November. Grand Central executive editor Ben Greenberg acquired the title. He stated:  “Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein, Bill Oakley and Jon Krisel have created such a unique, surreal world in Portlandia, and the book will allow fans to explore that world even further.”
