Release Date Announced for Carrie Brownstein Memoir

By on March 16, 2015


It has been far too long since Carrie Brownstein announced that she would be releasing a memoir and now we finally have a release date. Yes, granted the delay is partially due to the fact that she is a little busy being a rock star and television star, fans have been sitting on anticipating for the memoir for over a year.

Brownstein is the guitarist and vocalist for Sleater-Kinney as well as the co-star and writer for popular sketch series “Portlandia” with Fred Armisen.

Her memoir is now set to release on October 27 with the title “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl.” In their overview, Penguin Books states “This book intimately captures what it feels like to be a young woman in a rock-and-roll band, from her days at the dawn of the underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s through today.”

Unfortunately, the book will not touch very much on her with “Portlandia” but hopefully this means there will be a sequel.
