Since people can’t live in a library, Amy Krouse Rosenthal has created the next best thing at home. Watch the video, below.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal, bestselling author of Encyclopedia an Ordinary Life returns with Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal: not exactly a memoir—a literary experience that is unprecedented, unforgettable, and explosively human.

Why the title Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal?

  • Because the book is organized into chapters with classic subject headings such as Social Studies, Music, Language Arts, Math, etc.
    Because textbook is an expression meaning “quintessential,” as in, Oh, that wordplay and unconventional format is so typical of her, so textbook Amy.
     Because for the first time ever, readers can further engage with a book via text messaging.
     Because if an author’s previous book has E ncyclopedia i n the title, following it up with a Textbook would be rather nice.
    Not exactly a memoir, not just a collection of observations, Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal is an exploration into the many ways we are connected on this planet and speaks to the awe, bewilderment, and poignancy of being alive.

And now, a video from Amy showcasing her very own library themed décor at home.
