HeadshotPrinceton HealthCare System welcomes award-winning actress and bestselling author Brooke Shields to discuss her latest book, There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me. In her new memoir, the New York Times bestselling author of Down Came the Rain explores her relationship with her unforgettable mother, Teri. 

Brooke Shields never had what could be considered an ordinary life. Raised by her Newark-tough single mother, at the age of 11 months she became a model, BrookeShields-There Was a Little Girlthe start of a career that made her the most famous child, and then teen, of her generation. Her mother's skills as both parent and manager were formidable. On set, she fiercely protected her daughter from the temptations that waylaid many child stars. In fact, her actions often made her a media sensation in her own right. But in private, she was troubled and drank so much that at 13 her daughter staged an intervention.

As the actress grew into adulthood, the pair made choices and sacrifices that would affect their relationship forever. But when her mother died in 2012, Shields was by her side, loving and conflicted to the end. Only she knows the truth of the remarkable, difficult, scarred, and complicated woman who was her mother. And now, she's sharing that story with the world.
