“That Ms. Parker’s book is so seriously good seems like overkill. But it is.” – The New York Times

In her literary debut, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Mary-Louise Parker gives us a unique memoir written with grace and wit. A series of letters addressed to the various men in her life—from the grandfather she never met to the doctor who saved her life—Dear Mr. You is both poignant and uproariously funny. Join us as Parker sits down to discuss her life, her letters, and how they all come together.
