NEW YORK (AP) Parker Posey, a longtime favorite in the independent film community, is planning a book with an off-beat spirit.

Blue Rider Press has acquired the actress' "You're On An Airplane: A Self-Mythologizing Memoir in Monologues, Crafts and Recipes."

Posey is calling the book, which is scheduled to come out next year, a printed version of stories she's been telling friends. Her publisher describes it as a mix of "observational humor and personal history."

The 48-year-old Posey has appeared in films by Richard Linklater, Noah Baumbach, Hal Hartley and other independent directors. Her TV credits include "Boston Legal" and "The Good Wife."
