Crown announced it will publish comedian, writer, actor, producer, and director Seth Rogen’s first book, Yearbook, on May 11, 2021, in hardcover and digital formats.
Rogen first shared the news via his social media platforms. On Twitter, Rogen tweeted: “I wrote a book called Yearbook. It’s true stories and essays and stuff that I hope you think are funny. It comes out in May, but if you like you can order it now.” Rogen shared a similar message on Instagram, adding, “I’ve been working on this for years and am psyched to get it out in to the world. Yay! Thanks to the amazing @toddjamesreas for doing my cover art.”
When approached for comment, Sandy Rogen, Seth’s mother, had this to say:
“At first I was worried that Seth was writing a book, because I was like, ‘Oh no! What’s he gonna say?!’ I was actually scared to even read it. But I’m very happy I did. It’s not really a memoir, like I thought it might be. I guess it’s more of a bunch of funny stories? Does that make sense? He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to L.A., meeting some famous people, things like that. If I’m being honest, I really wish there wasn’t so much drug talk. Why does he need all that? It’s like ‘We get it!’ And some of the stories? I mean, they’re entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened and he never told me! Overall, I think it’s more sweet and funny than anything, so I like it, and I’m glad he wrote it, but I’d be even more glad if he called me more.”
