Just back from a triumphant Media Tour in New York and Washington, Oscar winning actress Shirley Jones and husband Marty Ingels hosted a celebrity book signing party at Barnes & Noble flagship store at The Grove. Shirley discussed her controversial book ‘Shirley Jones: A Memoir’ which has just been released by publishing powerhouse Simon & Schuster. Shirley answered questions to a packed room and did shy away from any questions.
“In this memoir you are going to meet the real flesh-and-blood Shirley Jones, not just the movie star or Mrs. Partridge.” —SHIRLEY JONES
She sang her way into America’s heart in classic films like Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The Music Man. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Elmer Gantry. And she played one of television’s most beloved moms in the iconic 1970s sitcom, The Partridge Family. From golden-voiced ingénue to bus-driving mother of a pop band, Shirley Jones has always seemed as pure and wholesome as her squeaky-clean image. But now she’s ready to set the record straight—in a memoir as shockingly candid, deliciously juicy, and delightfully frank as the star herself. Amazon.com
