Canadian actor, filmmaker and comedian Seth Rogen is writing a book.

Yearbook is a collection of funny and insightful personal essays. It will be published by Crown, an imprint of Penguin Random House and will be available on May 11, 2021.

"Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best," Rogen wrote for the book's description.

"I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day."

Rogen grew up in Vancouver, and is now based in Los Angeles. He got his start in Hollywood with a role on the Judd Apatow series Freaks and Geeks. He would go on to have roles in Apatow's films The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Funny People. He also began making his own movies, co-writing SuperbadPineapple Express and This Is the End, alongside childhood friend and collaborator Evan Goldberg.

Yearbook is Rogen's first book.
