Untitled by Amy Poehler (expected publication: October 21st, 2014 by HarperCollins

The much anticipated first book from comedic genius, actress, media darling, star of Parks and Recreation, alum of Saturday Night Live, and all around awesome lady, Amy Poehler.

You’ve seen her behind the desk on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update”, rapping about Sarah Palin while nine months pregnant, or portraying a perfect Hilary Clinton. You’ve seen her as Leslie Knope on the brilliant Parks and Recreation. In 2012 she hosted the Golden Globes alongside best friend Tina Fey to rave reviews and sky-high ratings…during which she sat on George Clooney’s lap. She has appeared in countless movies, and her voice has graced the biggest animated features of the last ten years. With two of her friends she started the organization Smart Girls at the Party (sgatp.net) to empower young women to “change the world by being yourself.” And, on her web series “Ask Amy” this working mother of two takes the time to answer questions from teenage girls about topics as seemingly simple as how to wear make-up to as complicated as how to have better self-esteem.

She’s a talented artist, but even more than that she is beloved by her peers and by her fans for her realness, her integrity, and her intelligence. She’s the celebrity best friend most people dream of. A go-to funny woman in Hollywood. She’s Amy Poehler.

I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS! She's one of my heroes (I tag her on Tumblr as 'Queen') and she's just so incredibly funny and inspirational. Like the synopsis says, "she's the celebrity best friend most people dream of". She has worked/works on some of my favorite shows in the world and with some of my favorite people in the world, and I can't wait to see how this book turns out!
