SOLD OUT! EVENT OVERVIEW:  Sally Field, Academy Award-Winner of 2 Oscars for Best Actress, will be In Conversation with Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books about Sally's New Hardcover Memoir In Pieces.


Sally Field is a 2 Time Academy Award-Winning Actress, and 3 Time Emmy Award-Winning Actress who has portrayed dozens of iconic roles on both the large and small screens.  In 2012, she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2015 she was honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Arts.  She has served on the Board of Directors of Vital Voices since 2002 and also served on the Board of The Sundance Institute from 1994 to 2010.  She has three sons and five grandchildren.


“If you think you know Sally Field from her 1985 “You Like Me, You Really Like Me” acceptance speech at the 1985 Oscars, think again! In her new memoir In Pieces, you’ll discover an amazing, resilient woman. With candor and raw emotion, she shares how she picked herself up and dusted herself off many many times. Starting as an actress at age 12 and through years riddled with personal and professional challenges, Sally has lived a remarkable life.  This is Sally herself writing and sharing her coping mechanisms in a voice both powerful and haunting because it is so earnest and vulnerable. The journey of life can often leave us in pieces, and only some of us manage to reexamine and understand how the parts can be reassembled into a different and stronger whole. Sally Field has done that, and you’ll be inspired as you journey with her through the pages of this moving and truly memorable narrative.  This Author Event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear an important cultural and historical voice in her own words.” ~ Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books

"In this intimate, haunting literary memoir, an American icon tells her story for the first time, and in her own gorgeous words--about a challenging and lonely childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and a powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother." ~ Grand Central Publishing, Hachette Book Group

One of the most celebrated, beloved, and enduring actors of our time, Sally Field has an infectious charm that has captivated the nation for more than five decades, beginning with her first TV role at the age of seventeen. From Gidget's sweet-faced "girl next door" to the dazzling complexity of Sybil to the Academy Award-worthy ferocity and depth of Norma Rae and Mary Todd Lincoln, Field has stunned audiences time and time again with her artistic range and emotional acuity.

Yet there is one character who always remained hidden: the shy and anxious little girl within. With raw honesty and the fresh, pitch-perfect prose of a natural-born writer, and with all the humility and authenticity her fans have come to expect, Field brings readers behind-the-scenes for not only the highs and lows of her star-studded early career in Hollywood, but deep into the truth of her lifelong relationships--including her complicated love for her own mother.

Powerful and memorable, In Pieces is an inspiring and important account of life as a woman in the second half of the 20th Century.
