Memoir Monday... Foxy by Pam Grier, A Review and Giveaway!

Foxy by Pam Grier...
Beauty And Brains

CONGRATS to Stpand, RubynReba, and Linda B. ! Thanks for joining in on the fun! By Entering, Tweeting and Following! Check your emails! There's one more person I'm waiting to hear back from... Is it You?!

Beautiful, bold, and bad, Pam Grier burst onto the movie scene in the 1970s, setting the screen on fire and forever changing the country's view of African American actresses. With a killer attitude and body to match, Grier became the ultimate fantasy of men everywhere. But she quickly proved that she was more than just a desirable film goddess. She had the brains, courage, and tenacity to sustain a career that would span more than 30 years. In FOXY, she chronicles the good, bad, and steamy highlights in her life and career.

Courtesy of Anna of Hachette Book Group, I can give away 3 copies! This book will be released on April 7th, so be one of the first to read Foxy! I haven't even received a copy yet, but when I do you can count on a review! In the meantime, read an Excerpt of Foxy...

I love memoirs too. I've been looking at Foxy. It really sounds interesting. She is a survivor. I would like to know about her and how she handled situations in her life.

Pam Grier was one of the few Hollywood role models available to me as a young girl. I look to reading her autobiography.
