Title of Event: Sondra Lee: Reading and Book Signing

Sondra Lee will read from and sign copies of her new book: I'VE SLEPT WITH EVERYBODY: A MEMOIR.

Sondra Lee – an actress, dancer, director, teacher and the original Tiger Lily to millions – takes us through nearly 50 years of a glorious career on stage (High Button Shoes, Peter Pan, Hotel Paradiso, Sunday in New York , Hello Dolly! among others) and films (Fellini’s La Dolce Vita) -- in front of and behind the scenes. An amazing tale of what can happen to a kid from a poor family who has talent and a determined will…. and with the help and generosity of others, finds her way to a rich and rewarding life in the arts. Describing her extraordinary adventures, always with a touch of humor and loving memories, recollections of trials and tribulations, countless series of short-lived and lifelong friendships with people such as Jerome Robbins, Robert Redford, Angela Lansbury, Gower Champion, Ginger Rogers, Jack Kerouac, Stella Adler, James Baldwin, among others, and romantic interludes with the famous -- Marlon Brando, Billy Rose, Baron de Rothschild -- and maybe some not-so famous. It goes to show you that a kid from Newark can have it all -- hard work, humor, celebrity, a life in the arts, and pay the rent.

"Sondra is a fascinating, hilarious storyteller. I have known her since I was a toddler. But it was when I was around nine that I really fell for her, perhaps it is because we are the same size! This book is a treasure chest of remembrances from a unique character at the center and time and place that I truly love." - MATTHEW BRODERICK

"....Sondra Lee takes us through the 'key hole' into a life filled with glamor, humor and pain, and most importantly reveals her keen perception of all that has taken place in the process of a life marvelously lived!" - ANGELA LANSBURY

"Sondra Lee has always been where the action is. Or is it that action happens where Sondra is? Thank God she’s written it all down and the end result is just like Sondra; funny, sexy , smart, and ruthlessly astute." - CHARLES BUSCH

"Sondra Lee is irrepressible and irresistible. On stage, in life, and in this memoir. She floats, she floats, she flies, she makes us smile, and think, and reflect- and want more, a lot more of her life in the arts... a dance to Sondra!" - JULES FEIFFER
