Presented as part of Symphony Space's Thalia Book Club, Huston will discuss her book with Tony-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, American Idiot), who worked with her on the Broadway-themed TV show "Smash."
"She recounts her enchanted childhood on an Irish estate, where her father entertained friends like Carson McCullers and Marlon Brando, and her years as a model and actress living at the Chelsea Hotel in the 1970s," press notes state.
Huston, who was seen on Broadway in Hamlet, won an Oscar in 1986 for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in "Prizzi's Honor" and is an Academy Award nominee for "Enemies: A Love Story" and "The Grifters." She also received Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal of Morticia Addams in "The Addams Family" and "Addams Family Values." She most recently starred in NBC's "Smash" as producer Eileen Rand.
