Carrie Fisher: The Princess Diarist

Tuesday November 22: 7:00PM 9:00PM

A long time ago in a galaxy right here, Princess Leia first graced the silver screen. She has since grown into an icon, being turned into decorative figurines and Halloween costumes. Recently, the infamous Carrie Fisher found the journals she had kept during the filming of on the most legendary movies of all time: Star Wars.

Featuring excerpts from her handwritten journals from a pre-star teen as well as new views from a larger-than-life celebrity, The Princess Diarist invites readers into the joys and absurdities of Hollywood stardom. Join us at the main floor’s Buying Desk for a book signing!
