    An Evening with Julie Andrews—To Be Rescheduled

    Writers Bloc Presents® at the Skirball! Julie Andrews is infinitely more than the sum of Mary Poppins and Maria von Trapp. Those iconic roles, which lit up screens less than one year apart, launched her film career and turned her into a legend. She now pulls the curtain back to share what went on behind the scenes. Her memoir, Home Work, chronicles Andrews’s experience in Hollywood, and in her personal life. It’s honest, funny, and sometimes painful as she reveals her challenges with her brilliant late husband, Blake Edwards, as well as with her blended family. Many of her films are cultural touchstones; Home Work reminds us of Andrews’s grace, humor, and extraordinary talent.
