Drew BarrymoreActress Drew Barrymore has landed a deal with the Penguin Random House imprint, Dutton.

According to the press release, Barrymore (pictured, via) plans to write a collection of autobiographical essays. At the moment, the title has not been revealed.

Executive editor Jill Schwartzman negotiated the deal for this project with Barrymore’s representative from the Creative Artists Agency. The book will feature “stories about living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood.”

Last year, Little, Brown and Company released Barrymore’s photography book called Find it in Everything. The pictures showcased heart-shaped objects.
