Child star, podcaster and best-selling author Jeannette McCurdy will speak in Fayetteville next month.
McCurdy, best-selling memoir author I’m glad my mother died about his experience as a child star and his relationship with an abusive mother, now deceased, will speak in downtown Fayetteville as part of the UA Distinguished Lecture Series on Monday, December 5.
