Carrie Brownstein, co-creator and star of IFC’s hipster spoof Portlandia, is the latest celebrity to land a book deal. Brownstein will pen a memoir about her life in music for Riverhead Books, according to The New York Times.

Aside from her work on Portlandia (costarring SNL’s Fred Armisen), Brownstein is known for her part in Sleater-Kinney, an all-girl alt rock band from Olympia, Washington, of which she is a founding member. Her memoir will reportedly cover her experience in music, including her time in Sleater-Kinney and indie rock band Wild Flag.

Currently, the memoir has no set title or publication date.
