Drew Barrymore reads from ‘Wildflower’

First United Methodist Church — Thursday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m.

Drew Barrymore, E.T. actress and author of the drug-drenched teeny-bopper autobiography Little Girl Lost, will read from her new memoir, Wildflower, in Iowa City. Hosted by Prairie Lights Bookstore and moderated by Iowa Public Radio’s Charity Neebbe, the event will take place at the First United Methodist Church on Oct. 29.

Admission to the reading is $35 and will include a copy of Barrymore’s memoir, which picks up after the years chronicled in her darker, raunchier first book, and details more positive life events such as forming the production company Flower Films, and becoming a mother of two.

Tickets are available online and at Prairie Lights Bookstore.
