NY – An Evening with Anna Kendrick

Actress Anna Kendrick appears in conversation with JBFC Board President Janet Maslin on Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 5:00 PM. Tickets available at the link…

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen, in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.” In The New York Times bestselling collection of humorous autobiographical essays, Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations. With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.” Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

Born and raised in Portland, Maine, Anna Kendrick made her Broadway debut at the age of twelve in her Tony-nominated performance for the musical High Society. Since her Academy Award–nominated role as Natalie Keener in Up in the Air, she has made numerous theatrical appearances, including starring roles in Into the Woods, the Twilight saga, and the Pitch Perfect film franchise. In 2013, she achieved musical success with the triple-platinum hit song “Cups (When I’m Gone),” featured in Pitch Perfect. She lives in Los Angeles.

Please note: the Q&A will be conducted before the film and a signed copy of Anna’s book, Scrappy Little Nobody, is included with the purchase of a ticket

NYC – Anna Kendrick Signing

Actress ANNA KENDRICK (Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air) appears  in conversation with Angela Ledgerwood at Barnes & Noble on Saturday August 19, 2017 at 7:00 PM to present and sign the paperback edition her book: Scrappy Little Nobody!

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.” At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In her autobiographical collection of essays Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.

Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

Few people possess a charming candor like Academy Award-nominated actress Anna Kendrick in her new collection of autobiographical essays, Scrappy Little Nobody.

About Scrappy Little Nobody

“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!” —Anna Kendrick
