Remember: The Page Turners Book Club is meeting on March 9 at 3 PM to discuss The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher.
In her most recent (and sadly, final memoir), Carrie Fisher focuses on her experiences while filming Star Wars: A New Hope. The middle section is excerpted directly from the journals she kept at the time, and includes some poetry as well as her musings regarding the affair she had with co-star Harrison Ford. Reading her actual journal entries feels way more personal than the sections of the book that are written more recently, with the perspective of a few decades to color things. I really enjoyed the book and could clearly hear her voice in my head as I read the book.
