The Oscar-nominated "PRECIOUS" star and "EMPIRE" actress delivers a long-awaited VERY personal memoir that is wise, fearless, stunningly smart, incredibly funny, and gloriously candid. From her unique childhood in Brooklyn as the daughter of a subway-singer mother and desperately poor, polygamous father, to getting the role of Precious, in the film made from the novel by poet Sapphire, Gabby talks intimately about her race and weight difficulties, her friendships and hatreds. In conversation with her will be David Wiegand of the S.F. Chronicle and Anita Johnson of KPFA Radio's Hardknock.
