WA – William Daniels Signing

Actor William Daniels (Boy Meets World, Knight Rider, 1776) appears at Third Place Books on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 7:00 PM to sign his new memoir There I Go Again.

There I Go Again is a celebrity memoir like no other, revealing the life of a man whose acting career has been so rich that millions of Americans know his face even while they might not recognize his name.

William Daniels is an enigma–a rare chameleon who has enjoyed massive success both in Hollywood and on Broadway and been embraced by fans of successive generations. Few of his peers inspire the fervor with which buffs celebrate his most iconic roles, among them George Feeny in Boy Meets World, KITT in Knight Rider, Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, and John Adams in the play and film 1776. Daniels guides readers through some of Hollywood’s most cherished productions, offering recollections of entertainment legends including Lauren Bacall, Warren Beatty, Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Mike Nichols, Jason Robards, Barbra Streisand, and many more. Looking back on his seventy-five-plus-year career, Daniels realizes that although he never had the courage to say “no” to being an actor, he backed into stardom. With his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, by his side, he came to realize that he wound up exactly where he was supposed to be: on the screen and stage.

Courtney Huston is an illustrator who strives to make fantastical narratives while exploring her own domestic story. By intertwining a piece of herself in every piece, she hopes viewers are able to feel the same emotions felt at the time of creation. Her work is highly inspired by screen printing and other printmaking techniques. Her pieces are made with traditional ink and watercolor. These materials allow her to play with the juxtaposition of hard geometric lines and watercolor washes.
