This program does not include a book signing. All books will be pre-signed by the author.

From the Academy and Emmy Award-winning actress comes In Pieces, a memoir illuminating Field’s challenging and lonely childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and a powerful, emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother.

One of the most celebrated and beloved actors of our time, Field has entertained audiences for more than five decades, beginning with her first TV role at the age of seventeen. From Gidget‘s sweet-faced “girl next door” to the complexity of Sybil to the depth of Norma Rae and Mary Todd Lincoln, Field has demonstrated impressive artistic range and emotional acuity. Yet there is one character who always remained hidden: the shy and anxious little girl within.

With raw honesty and the humility and authenticity her fans have come to expect, Field brings readers behind the scenes for the highs and lows of her early experiences in Hollywood, and explores the inner workings of her lifelong relationships. In conversation with Ari Shapiro, a co-host of All Things Considered.
