Join us for conversation and cocktails with Author and Academy Award-winning Actress Marcia Gay Harden in discussion with Fashion Entrepreneur and Media Personality Jeanne Beker.
Marcia will be launching her book The Seasons of My Mother in Canada and you will have the opportunity to hear first hand about the joys and losses of life even as Marcia’s precious mother gracefully strives to maintain her identity while coming to grips with Alzheimer’s disease.
Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden has forged a remarkable body of work, always staying true to her chameleon style of “becoming the character.” From the glamorous Ava Gardner in Sinatra, to the artist Lee Krasner in Pollock (for which she won Best Supporting Actress Oscar®), to the down and out Celeste in Mystic River(another Academy Award® nomination) Marcia has created a signature style based in character transformation. Her versatility and wide-range have been praised in such films as Millers Crossing, The First Wives Club, Meet Joe Black, Mona Lisa Smile, The Hoax, and Used People.
Enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres, a partial book reading and fireside chat, with Marcia addressing the issues attendees want to hear most. Guests will receive an autographed copy of The Seasons of My Mother and have an opportunity to personally thank Marcia.
