Carrie Brownstein to release a memoir
Carrie Brownstein has lived a pretty action packed life, being an essential element to the ’90s and ’00s indie rock world with Sleater-Kinney, writing for “The Believer,” “Slate,” and “The New York Times,” and now co-starring in a successful IFC show, “Portlandia.” Nowadays, Brownstein’s been juggling her time between the show and her new band Wild Flag, but still managing to find time for extra-curricular work.
This time out, though, her project will be about her many projects: her own memoir. There’s no title or release date set yet, but Brownstein says the book will focus on her music career from fan, to guitarist, to a role in comedy, according to the New York Times.
In other Brownstein publication news, she also says she and her “Portlandia” co-star, Fred Armisen will be releasing their own book based on the show, which will be released November 20th via Grand Central Publishing.
For preparation for this exclusive into Brownstein’s Sleater-Kinney days, check out the band’s performance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in 2005.
