Join the Tattered Cover for a special evening with Academy Award- and Emmy-winning acting legend Sally Field, who's been at it for over half a century. In this haunting memoir, Field recounts a challenging and lonely childhood, the career that helped her find her voice, and a powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother. In Pieces is a powerful book, an inspiring and important account of a fascinating woman's life in the latter twentieth century.
