Academy Award-winning actress Julie Andrews will celebrate the release of her forthcoming book "Home: A Memoir of My Early Years" at the Barnes and Noble Booksellers Union Square on April 2.

The memoir, including over 50 personal photographs, spans Andrews' life from 1935-1962. Recollecting her family life, the London Blitz of WWII and a childhood spent on radio, in music halls and her career on Broadway, "Home," according to publisher's notes, "is filled with numerous anecdotes, including stories of performing in My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison on Broadway and in the West End, and in Camelot with Richard Burton on Broadway; her first marriage to famed set and costume designer Tony Walton, culminating with the birth of their daughter, Emma; and the call from Hollywood and what lay beyond."
Published by Hyperion Books, the 352-page "Home: A Memoir of My Early Years" will be available April 1.

The 7 PM signing and discussion of Julie Andrews' "Home: A Memoir of My Early Years" will take place at the Barnes and Noble Booksellers Union Square, located at 33 East 17th Street in Union Square North.
