Meet Dear Abby: The Woman Behind the Pen

An Evening with Jeanne Phillips

Jeanne Phillips, better known as “Dear Abby," is taking her voice from the page to the stage, spending a personal evening with her devoted readers in Meet Dear Abby: The Woman Behind the Pen. She’ll be sharing the intimate stories of how her mother started Dear Abby, the long-storied “feud” with her sister Ann Landers, insights from her journey as a writer, and a few things not fit to publish. Those who have ever wondered what advice Dear Abby would have, now have the chance to ask for themselves. A moderated Q&A will round out the evening. You will not want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event.
