Valerie Harper to Publish Memoir With Gallery Books
Posted on April 28, 2012
Simon & Schuster' Gallery Books imprint announced it will publish a memoir by actress Valerie Harper entitled I, Rhoda. The book is scheduled for publication in January 2013.
In the memoir, Valerie reflects on the groundbreaking CBS series, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and on the spin-off show Rhoda. She also talks about the pressures of helming her own sitcom, Valerie. Valerie also discusses her childhood in New Jersey and upstate New York to the beginnings of her acting career as a dancer and chorus girl on Broadway - performing alongside stars like Lucille Ball and Jackie Gleason.
Valerie Harper says, "I Rhoda Book is the book I can't wait to write! Decades after The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda Morgenstern and Mary Richards are still alive in the minds of so many people. I get called Rhoda so often that I sometimes forget who's who. And what fun it will be to tell people that I wrote a book called I Rhoda Book!"
