Oscar Winner Shirley Jones to Appear at National Press Club

From our friends at the National Press Club...

American film legend Shirley Jones will discuss and sign copies of her new book "Shirley Jones: A Memoir."

This is a ticketed event and registration is required below. All attendees must have a ticket. This event is a fundraiser for the NPC Journalism Institute. No outside books or memorabilia permitted.

Shirley Jones is an American film legend of the first order, having starred in Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Music Man, and her Oscar-winning role as a prostitute in Elmer Gantry, long before portraying one of television’s most beloved moms in the iconic 1970s sitcom, The Partridge Family.

But for those who only think of Shirley as the prim and proper Marion the librarian or the chaste and demure Mrs. Partridge, a massive surprise is in store. Here, in this candid memoir, the real flesh and blood Shirley Jones is revealed at last.

In this hilarious and heartwarming, shocking and intimate memoir, Shirley dishes the raw truth about her own highly charged sexuality, her two husbands—the charismatic and deeply troubled Broadway star Jack Cassidy and the wacky TV comic Marty Ingels—her legendary Hollywood co-stars, and her interactions with the cast of The Partridge Family, including her rock star stepson David Cassidy.

From smuggling marijuana across the Mexican border to infidelity and her wild sexual escapades, movie and television icon Shirley Jones gives us an unparalleled look beyond the America’s sweetheart exterior.

All sales are final; no refunds will be issued.
