Megan Amram Gets a Book Deal


Megan Amram is writing a book about science. Publisher’s Weekly reports that Amram, a comedy writer who amassed hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers before landing a job on Parks and Recreation’s writing staff, sold a book to Scribner Publishing. Called Science…for Her, the publisher describes it as a “faux-expert compendium of scientific knowledge” that plays with the “satirical conceit that ‘science is hard for most people, let alone women.’” Here’s hoping she gets to keep her intentionally gross Twitter picture, which she describes as “Jabba the Hut on his Quinceañera,” for her author bio.
