Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen to Make a 'Portlandia' Travel Guidebook
February 14, 2012 at 1:00 PM
IFC's hit series Portlandia has been showing us around Portland's neighborhoods for two seasons, and now they are bringing that expertise to bookstores.
Hachette imprint Grand Central Publishing will release “PORTLANDIA: A Guide for Visitors” later this year. The book will be written like a traditional travel guide, but instead of providing practical information, like prices or reviews, it will take readers on a tour of Portland's landmarks, shops, and restaurants in the same quirky tone Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen use on their sketch comedy show.
The book was acquired by Ben Greenberg, Executive Editor, who said, “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.”
“PORTLANDIA: A Guide for Visitors” will hit shelves on November 20, 2012.
