We love this – 90’s child star Mara Wilson (Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire) is coming to Toronto for a special In Conversation appearance.
Wilson will be telling stories from her funny, poignant and daringly honest memoir, Where Am I Now? True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame. She describes feeling young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. When she hits adolescence she discovers that she is no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood. These essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity.
Wilson will be giving a talk at Indigo (2300 Yonge St. @ Eglinton) on Tuesday September 27th from 7 to 8 p.m.
