The Drama Book Shop is pleased to actress Joyce Bulifant to celebrate the publication of her new memoir, My Four Hollywood Husbands, on Monday, October 30th at 4:00pm. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and the discussion will be followed by a signing. Admission is free and open to the public.
Most beloved for her roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bonanza, Love Thy Neighbor, Match Game, and Airplane!, she has been in dozens of films and television shows. Outside of her on-stage career, Joyce has devoted much of her life to campaigning for children's rights as Executive Vice President of The Dyslexia Foundation and founder of the Hans Christian Anderson Award which recognizes dyslexics who made a positive contribution to society, including recipient Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg.
Joyce’s real life was no less dramatic than her role as an actress, and her upcoming memoir, My Four Hollywood Husbands is a love story interwoven with the golden age of televison and her marriages to four different Hollywood husbands, including Hawaii Five-O’s James MacArthur and William Asher (Emmy-winning director of I Love Lucy and Bewitched) - all of them notorious alcoholics. The book details Joyce’s struggle with co-dependency and the affect of alcoholism on her and her children against the background of her glamorous life in theater and television. Ultimately, it is a story of triumph, of renewed courage and finding happiness, told in Bulifant's signature humorous and self-deprecating way.
