The Center for the Book doesn’t often have the opportunity to present celebrities outside the literary world, so we’re excited to be able to present a special appearance by the popular film and television actress Gina Gershon. She is the author of a new book that ought to have a wide appeal to pet lovers, especially cat fanciers: it’s ”In Search of Cleo,” all about the star’s desperate and surprising two-month search for her beloved lost cat Cleo. Along the way, roaming through the back streets of Los Angeles, Gershon met up with an astonishing group of real characters, from hippies to mystics, and even encountered Ellen DeGeneres, who joins in the search and recommends her own pet psychic. Gina Gershon is perhaps best known for her roles in the movies ”Showgirls” and ”Bound,” but she also has appeared in ”The Insider” and ”Dreamland,” and on television she has had recurring roles in ”Melrose Place,” ”Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and ”How to Make It in America.” Her Broadway roles including leading parts in ”Cabaret,” ”Boeing-Boeing” and the current revival of ”Bye Bye Birdie.” This will be a free event with no tickets or reservations. Please, no memorabilia. Ms.Gershon will only sign copies of her book at this event. (jasbro)
