Carol Burnett, award-winning actress and bestselling
author, will sign copies of her new book, Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story (Publish Date: April 9, 2013) and participate in a moderated Q&A session on Thursday, May 30. Tickets are $65 per person*, which include a dinner following the program. No photography or videography of any kind will be permitted at this event. Cell phones, cameras, video cameras, etc. will not be permitted into the event.
As Miss Burnett will only be signing books for one hour, only the guests with the first 300 books sold will be guaranteed a book signed through the book signing line. All other guests may get in line, but if Miss Burnett cannot accommodate everyone, the remaining people in line will receive their book with her signature on our book plate. Books must be purchased in the Ronald Reagan Museum Store to receive signature. To accommodate the short timeframe of the book signing, Miss Burnett will not be personalizing books (she will sign her name only).
In this beautiful and poignant tribute to her late daughter, Carol Burnett
presents a funny and moving memoir about mothering an extraordinary
young woman through the struggles and triumphs of her life. In
Carrie and Me, Carol Burnett shares her personal diary entries and
correspondence revealing her anguish as a mother of a troubled
teenager, the epiphanies that helped her help her family, and the grief
and then the hope she felt after Carrie’s death from cancer. Through
Burnett’s inimitable voice, we get a portrait of an unforgettable young
woman that will bring hope to anyone struggling with raising or losing
