Sally Field captivated audiences and earned two Academy Awards and three Emmys on the strength of performances ranging from sweet-faced, girl-next-door roles to characters as complex as Sybil, Norma Rae, and Mary Todd Lincoln. Yet one character remained hidden: the shy and anxious girl within.
In her literary memoir, In Pieces, Field tells her story for the first time — of a lonely and challenging childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother.
Princeton Health will host Field for a moderated discussion of the book, which provides a behind-the-scenes look at her career in Hollywood and delves into the truth of her lifelong relationships, including a complicated love for her mother.
The ticket price includes a copy of In Pieces, light desserts, coffee and tea.
