You may know Carrie Brownstein from "Portlandia," the IFC comedy she created with Fred Armisen. You may also know her from her acclaimed rock band Sleater-Kinney, which released its first album in a decade earlier this year and toured behind it in the spring. She also appears in the acclaimed Amazon Prime series "Transparent" and has a role in Todd Haynes' next movie, "Carol," which premiered at Cannes last month. Oh ... and she's writing a movie version of the British TV series "Lost in Austen," picking up where the late Nora Ephron left off.
One more thing: Her memoir, "Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl," will be published in October.
Brownstein will also be stopping by The Times on Wednesday at 11 a.m. PDT to talk about any and all of these things, though we might be simply asking her for tips on productivity and time management.
