Academy Award Winner. Humanitarian campaigner. Mensa member. Star of Beetlejuice, The Accidental Tourist and Thelma and Louise. In this stunning memoir, Geena Davis offers a witty, warm, honest account of her life. The path to empowerment never did run smooth. Davis might now be an A-List celebrity with two Academy Awards and a major humanitarian award under her belt, but she began life painfully polite. In this memoir, she tells stories of meeting the supremely independent and sharp-shooting Susan Sarandon, the Louise to her Thelma; of her spontaneous Las Vegas wedding to Jeff Goldblum; of her archery exploits which led her to the Olympic trials; and of how she became a tireless advocate for women and girls, founding her own institute which engages film and TV creators to better represent women. Warm, entertaining, revealing and surprising, this is a book for fans of Nora Ephron, for those interested in life behind the Hollywood facade, and in how a remarkable woman gained the courage to campaign for women worldwide.
