We loved her as Nancy Botwin on Weeds, Amy Gardner on The West Wing, Ruth on Fried Green Tomatoes… we could go on and on. Now, we’re getting to know Mary Louise Parker as an author. Dear Mr. You is a collection of literary essays that take the form of letters Parker has penned to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. We’re thrilled to see this Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe-winning actress make her literary debut. Join us tonight as Parker appears in conversation with Austin writer Vincent Scarpa. After their talk, she’ll sign books. Tickets for the signing are available with the purchase of a copy of Dear Mr. You from BookPeople.

ABOUT MARY LOUISE PARKER

Mary-Louise Parker is a Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe award-winning actress. Her writing has appeared in Esquire, The Riveter, Bust, and The Bullet. This is her first book.

ABOUT DEAR MR. YOU

A wonderfully unconventional literary debut from the award-winning actress Mary-Louise Parker.  An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman s life through letters Mary-Louise Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood to remembrances of former lovers to an homage to a firefighter she encountered to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Readers will be amazed by the depth and style of these letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.
