MEMORABLE READS FOR THE BOOKLOVER

Audition / Barbara Walters

(Knopf, ISBN: 030726646X)

Young people starting out in television sometimes say to me: "I want to be you." My stock reply is always: "Then you have to take the whole package."

And now, at last, the most important woman in the history of television journalism gives us that "whole package," in her inspiring and riveting memoir. After more than forty years of interviewing heads of state, world leaders, movie stars, criminals, murderers, inspirational figures, and celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life.

Indigo Interview: Barbara will sit down with Heather Reisman on June 2, 2008 at Indigo Bay-Bloor to discuss her new memoir, Audition.
