Join us for an evening with Lee Grant, whose talent, intelligence, grit and passion have made her one of the most respected and beloved figures in the entertainment world. Grant first gained acclaim as an award-winning star of stage and screen, then went on to have a distinguished three-decade career as a director, a remarkable achievement for a woman of her day. In 1989, Women in Film honored Grant with its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award. She received NYWIFT's Muse Award in 2004.
Grant recounts her fascinating story in her new memoir, I Said Yes to Everything. There will be a book signing directly following the event.
Film critic Jeffrey Lyons will be conducting the interview with Grant.

The Kilgannons are a typical Irish family in 1974 Buffalo. However, the world is changing fast, the generation gap is widening, and the future is up for grabs. Will the Kilgannons find the serenity to accept the things they cannot change and the wisdom to know that what needs changing most is sitting around the dinner table? THE BRIGHTNESS OF HEAVEN is a witty drama about Family, Faith, and the ties that bind - sometimes too tightly.
