Tina Fey signs $5 million book deal

Tina Fey has been in high demand during the last month—first the 30 Rock creator nabbed three Emmys, then she hit the comedienne jackpot when Sarah Palin, whom many have called her "doppelganger," sparking a series of appearances on her alma mater, Saturday Night Live. Then, as reported last week, her agent began feeling out offers from publishing companies for a non-fiction book deal.

It's now been confirmed. Tina Fey has signed with Little, Brown & Company, at an advance price rumored to be in the $5 million range. LB&C hasn't released any information about the genre, publication date, or price of the book. We do know, however, that the deal included a gift to the nonprofit Books for Kids, which will go toward building libraries for New York schools.
