Actress/Author Geri Jewell to Visit UAF

Click on above image for larger version
Famous for her role on 'The Facts of Life,' Geri Jewell has written an inspiring memoir, ‘I'm Walking As Straight As I Can’. The title refers both to the struggles growing up with cerebral palsy and her sexuality. This candid memoir details her rise to stardom as a stand‐up comic and becoming the first person with a disability to act in a recurring prime‐time television role. Her journey takes her from the Comedy Store to the White House, followed by a downward spiral that almost ended her life. Through her tears and triumphs, she is transformed into a shining symbol of hope for anyone who dares to follow their dreams.
