Perhaps most well known for her role as Elliott’s mom in Steven Spielberg’s beloved film classic “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,” Dee Wallace is also a well-regarded author and speaker on the art of self-healing. On the heels of her fast success with “E.T.,” “The Howling” and “Cujo,” Wallace watched her career lose steam and she felt she had lost her way. In her new book, “Bright Light: Spiritual Lessons From a Life in Acting,” she shares her spiritual journey back – to reclaim power in her life and the strength that comes from following the heart’s lead. A book sale and signing will follow the author’s discussion. This author event is presented free to the public. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.
