Sally Field, one of the most celebrated and beloved actors of our time, captivated audiences and earned two Academy Awards and three Emmys, thanks to performances ranging from sweet-faced, girl-next-door roles to characters as complex as Sybil, Norma Rae, and Mary Todd Lincoln. Yet one character always remained hidden: the shy and anxious little girl within.
In her literary memoir, In Pieces, Field tells her story for the first time - of 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.
Penn Medicine Princeton Health is proud to host Field for a moderated discussion about the book, which provides a behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of her career in Hollywood and delves into the truth of her lifelong relationships, including a complicated love for her mother.
