000-cfisher-princess-diarist-fb

Carrie Fisher appears at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble to sign her latest book THE PRINCESS DIARIST on Monday November 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved–plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all.
