OR – Mary-Louise Parker Signing

0000-Mary-Louise-Parker

Actress Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, Red, Fried Green Tomatoes) signs her book Dear Mr. You at Powell’s City of Books on Saturday, June 25 at 2:00 PM.

Dear Mr. You (Scribner) is the bestselling, wonderfully unconventional, “warmly conspiratorial… seriously good” (The New York Times) literary memoir from award-winning actress Mary-Louise Parker. An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman’s life through letters 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 Parker’s letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.
